Here comes another card from Pitcha and her smiley faces with braces. 😀 I’m too lazy to google something interesting and educational about monks, so I’m just gonna copy an interesting article about their daily life. (source: http://www.buddhanet.net/)

4.00 am – The monks wake up and meditate for one hour, followed by one hour of chanting.

6.00 am – The monks walk barefoot around the neighbourhood while the local people make merit by offering them food.

8.00 am – Returning to the temple, the monks sit together to eat breakfast, then make a blessing for world peace.

Before 12.00 noon – Some monks choose to eat a light lunch at this time. This is the last solid food they are allowed to consume until sunrise the following morning.

1.00 pm – Classes in Buddhist teaching begin. Some monks may attend school outside the temple.

6.00 pm – A two-hour session of meditation and prayer begins.

8.00 pm – The monks retire to do homework.
