Photographer's Note

After the ordination to novice monks on the last day of the PoySangLong festival, the newly robed and ordained boys leave the temple Viharn in a line and receive alms for the first time from relatives, friends and others. After this they will go on alms round each morning after dawn on various routes around the area.
Binderbaht, or Alms round, is not altogether for the purpose of collecting food, but to show compassion for all beings, giving them the opportunity to make merit by practicing giving and generosity.
