29,000 Temples by foureyes 29,000 Temples by foureyes
There are 29,000 Buddhists Temples in Thailand :floating:
Important to Western impressions of Buddhism is that Buddhists of all kinds do not pray to a statue but use the statue or painting of Buddha as a focus for their prayerful good wishes for all living things and exalting other Buddhist ideals. Buddhist use water as an offering to symbolically represent giving up some worldly things, and water is chosen because even the most poor person can obtain water to carry out the ceremony.

Oh, there is your Facebook link. I've seen your work so many places that I am getting confused. I love this image of the Buddhist monk and your explanation below the photo. You will probably never see this, but I have an amazing niece who spent last summer teaching English in a Buddhist temple. Prior to that, I had no idea that this ever happened. An amazing culture & I am lucky enough to have a new member of my family from Thailand (my nephew's wife). Another great photo, my friend :heart:

Do you know what book he was reading? Although I suppose it could be a woman; I can't tell.

Also, a very well composed photograph. Well done.
