Unfortunately, many Monks in Thailand are short ordination Monks. This is often done, in reality twice in their lives, once as a Samenara then later in life as a Bhikku. Unfortunately these guys have no real intentions of remaining in the Monk hood and even less intention of keeping their vows. This is a shame as it often brings comments putting down all the good Monks who exist in many places in Thailand.

Interesting detail re the monkhood and an excellent debut post, too . . . thanks for that!

As the Thai abbott of my Thai temple in London likes to say "you need to be very careful when choosing a temple in Thailand". Very easy to spot the good temples and monks though - they are both clean and don't pander for money. At a rough guess that's probably about 15% of the total !
