Cérémonie du noviciat : l'aumône des moines.

Cérémonie du noviciat : l'aumône des moines. by Evelyne Dubos

Posted on 2015-03-20

Les moines bouddhistes ne gagnent pas d'argent, ils ne vivent que de l'aumône et dépendent complètement des dons de nourriture ou de biens matériels des fidèles bouddhistes.
Chaque matin, de très bonne heure ils font le tour de la ville, leur bol d'aumône à la main, pour recevoir les offrandes et prient, en échange, pour les donateurs.
Ils font de même vers 11H, ensuite ils ne mangent plus jusqu'au lendemain matin.
Le jour de la fête du noviciat, les familles font leurs offrandes
