Novice Life

The best way to make merit is to give food to monks. In turn monks share the inspirations of the Buddha. They also provide a good home for young novices to learn.

Boys in Thailand are encouraged to become monks, if only for a week. Sometimes they do this to honor a grandparent who has died. Being ordained and disrobing at a later point is common.
