This is my entry for #peoplephotography week# 21 hosted by @worldcapture.

During my bus ride through Chinatown, I was surprised to see this elderly monk walking by himself in late afternoon.  Usually monks are not allowed to go shopping like lay people.  I think he probably came from the countryside and was on his way to a temple nearby to find a place to stay while in Bangkok.  

Whenever I see an elderly forest monks along the road in the outer provinces, I would ask them to stop so that I could offer them done food and drink.  Monks  cannot go about buying themselves breakfast and they have to finish their main meal of the day before noon.  If they miss the time, then they have to wait till the next day to be able to eat  again.  This is Buddhist monks’ rule to keep them dependent on the local community and to be monitored by them.  If the monks are very diligent and good practitioners of Dhamma and  meditation, local people would admire and show their respect by offering them daily food and catering for their survival needs.  So, Buddhist monks could become spiritual leaders in villages and guide villagers towards right livelihood. 

เดือนก่อนเรานั่งรถเมล์ผ่านไปทางถนนเยาวราช แถวไซน่าทาวน์ เราค่อนข้างแปลกใจที่เห็นพระสูงอายุมาเดินอยู่รูปเดียวที่นั่น มองดูแล้วน่าจะเป็นพระมาจากต่างจังหวัด  ท่านคงกำลังเดินไปหาวัดแถวนั้นเพื่อจำวัดในกรุงเทพฯ. เวลาเราไปต่างจังหวัด เรามักจะพบพระมาจากวัดป่าและพระธุดงค์เดินอยู่ตามถนนลำพัง. ถ้าเราอยู่ในระแวกนั้น เราจะขอนิมนต์ให้ท่านหยุด เพื่อเราจะได้ซื้ออาหารและนํ้ามาถวายบิณฑบาตท่าน  เพราะพระที่เคร่งวินัยสงฆ์ จะไม่ไปซื้ออาหารมาฉันท์เอง. และถ้าเลยเวลาเพล์ไปแล้ว พระต้องรอวันต่อไปกว่าจะรับบิณฑบาต  เราจึงพยายามส่งเสริมพระวัดป่าและพระธุดงค์ที่มาเดินผ่านเขตเมือง เพื่อเดินทางไปสู่จุดหมายต่อไป ให้ได้รับการอนุเคราะห์ตามแต่โอกาสจะอำนวย เราจะดูออกว่าพระรูปไหนเป็นพระที่ปฎิบัติดีปฎิบัติชอบ  ถ้าเจอพระที่อยู่ดีๆมาสั่งให้ทำอะไรให้ เราก็จะกลายเป็นนักท่องเที่ยวต่างชาติทันที หรือไม่ก็ทำเป็นไม่เข้าใจ แล้วเดินไปทางอื่น. เพื่อหลีกเลี่ยงปัญหาต้องจับพระปลอมส่งตำรวจ  เราไม่มีเวลาขนาดนั้น  และพระปลอมมักมีมีดติดอยู่ในย่ามด้วย! 

Wishing you peace, good health and prosperity.

Cheers.

Yes! So, bad ones would not get much food or support from the community! That’s the idea of quality control in the past!

Thank you! If the old tradition is still relevant and useful, but not causing any harm, I would try to preserve that tradition.  Sometimes things have got to change as they have become irrelevant and do not serve any useful purposes.
But Thai people are too self-indulgent  and tend to spoil themselves by using tradition as an excuse!!

Cheers.
