Of Nuns and Monks 2

Buddhist Nuns

“Girl Nuns” / Yangon, Myanmar / July 2016

Myanmar, July 2016:  I am amazed at the strength of faith and dedication Myanmar people demonstrate towards their religion.  Young boys and girls, at a very young age, get trained on the teachings of Buddha and the long-standing traditions of Buddhism.  Walking around my hotel’s neighborhood in Yangon one morning with my camera, I found these young girls assembled at a street corner, looking a bit sleepy but obviously ready to do the alms collection rounds of the day.
