And Army is supposed to serve the country. What? It's not serve? Ok run that is.....

Who write these rules..shun worldly possessions?? Is that the reason whole temples are loaded with gold?? Gold paint that is...

I'm sure they all do that hiding the car around the corner and walking around to where they receive alms, these are new age monks and one can not expect them to walks many miles from their temples or monasteries right?...

All religions, aka superstitions, are rife with shysters and frauds that prey on the gullible. :post-4641-1156693976:

Aren't all Thai men supposed to be a monk for a year?

Maybe this monk is just a "temp" and hasn't fully committed to the program of austerity, especially when his Honda has AC.

Oh really! Opposite my apartment is a large Buddhist temple teaching complex where most of the monks have smartphones and can be clearly seen using them. In fact just outside, a lady with a stall sells the top-up scratch cards to them, along with soft drinks and crushed ice, over the perimeter wall. (stock photo)

Meanwhile Daily news quoted the Sangha Council as saying that monks or novices driving cars and motorcycles was a "no-no"

But flying in private jets is!

ASEAN NOW notes that monks are supposed to shun worldly possessions - they are permitted to have saffron robes and perhaps a shoulder bag but that's it. And a alms bowl.

At least it wasn’t a Mercedes’ 

That is kept solely for the top Monk at the Wat. The police outriders being an added bonus.
