Photographer's Note

Buddhism in Myanmar is predominantly of the Theravada tradition, about 89% of Burmese practices Buddhism.
Burmese also send their children to the monastery to receive a Buddhist education...
A symbolic procession and ceremony of exchanging princely attire with that of an ascetic follows the example of the historical Buddha.

89 % des Birmans pratiquent la branche Theravada du boudhisme et les enfants doivent passer quelque temps dans un monastère pour y recevoir une éducation boudhiste.
Leur intronisation comme novice donne lieu à une cérémonie, à laquelle nous avons eu la chance d'assister.

Hope you like it...
