Giving alms to monks
WarningGiving alms is a wonderful thing to see and if with a sincere feeling also a wonderful experience to do yourself. Remember it is a religious ceremony, not a tourist show made for you! So there are a few things to consider :
- If you are just going to have a look, please stay at a distance and be respectful to the people giving and to the monks. Do not walk in between the monks or the people giving alms. Do not touch the monks. Be dressed appropriately, like going to a temple.
- And if you want to participate in it then ask your host (hotel) how to do. Best would be to make the food yourself so it is fresh and healthy food.
