Shwe Oo Min Monks return from alms round




At Shwe Oo Min Monastery, monks return from their alms round. Rain or shine, they walk every morning at around 7 am for one hour in their neighborhood. They are given rice, curries, and snacks from village homes and stalls. The monks seen here show the diversity found at Shwe Oo Min-- there are Burmese monks, of course, as well as others coming from various Asian and Western countries.
