Monk caught at love motel with woman and drugs

The robes does not makes the monk, and this is why if we pretend to indulge we should not become one.

Compassion, in any of it's forms, is the mark of emptyness.

"Emptyness" without compassion is not real emptiness.

This is very sad even monks party harder than I do. :cry:

However this is a good reminder to not judge a book by its cover and also great chance for me to think if I'd be a good monk.

Hopefully the sangha in Thailand will change how they ordain people. Lately there have been a few issues around this as they are ordaining people without getting to know their past.

In Thailand most men ordain for a few months. The monk in question may well have been one of these. Also the courts in Thailand will occasionally sentence young guys to either the army or a monastery depending upon their crime and suitability.
I've met a monk that was sentenced to a monastery as a teenager for drinking and fighting and when his sentence was completed he decided to stay.

What's really disturbing is that the girl was wearing a "Yeezy for president" t-shirt:

That's probably just a result of manufacturing over-runs being dumped locally. You can find all kinds of stuff in street markets in Asia, and I've seen people in Thailand wearing various t-shirts with messages that they obviously don't understand. Presumably they just liked the pictures... It can be a bit jarring when the message is x-rated and the wearer is a 10 year old girl... :thinking:
