Alms Giving Procession

We truly enjoyed the spirituality of giving food to the procession of buddhist monks walking to their temple early morning. This is a very quiet and enlightening experience and one must observe and respect the etiquette while trying not to infringe the monks humble spirituality. We were fortunate that the procession walked right in front of our lovely hotel (My Dream Boutique Resort) and that our hotel prepared a symbolic meal of sticky rice and crackers, and also explained how to participate, including the strict dress code. While still a unique photo opportunity, one must not forget the religious context should participate with dignity and respect.
Zelf regelen zonder begeleiding veel goedkoper wel leuke ervaring

Zijn opgehaald bij hotel uitgelegd wat te doen als de monniken langskomen daarna over ochtend markt gelopen. Niks geproefd of gedronken . Sticky rice gekregen verder niks. Veel geld voor heel weinig. Aardige gids

Vroeg opgestaan om op tijd aanwezig te zijn. Wat opviel waren de vele standjes waar je rijst kon kopen om ook mee te doen met deze religieuze activiteit. Hoewel veel mensen dit met de beste bedoelingen zullen doen kun je je afvragen of dit te commercieel is geworden. Honderden krukjes op een rij waar je mag aanschuiven om de monniken ook een aalmoes te geven volgens boeddhistische traditie.
Als je erheen gaat, gebruik geen flits op je camera en blijf lag uit eerbied en respect aan de monniken
