Thailand monks

The ordination ceremony for our eldest sons at the local village temple was a colourful affair that blended Isan traditions with Buddhist rites.

Above, the ordination ceremony has just been completed and our sons are about to then start their seven days of life as Thai monks in the village temple gounds. The white, cloth-coloured items on their backs are their new alms bowls, which they will put to first use on their alms gathering rounds the following morning.

Festivals, ceremonies and traditions in Thailand offer rich material to keen photographers aiming to catch some of the numerous indigenous ways of life around Gecko Villa.
