Monochrome Monday: Praying Nuns

Frozen Memories

Buddhist Nuns in Prayer Buddhist Nuns in Prayer

Fully ordained female Buddhists are called nuns and typically dress in all white unlike the monks who are draped in saffron robes. I prefer the saffron worn by the monks.  Like the monks, the nuns shave their heads.

This woman was part of a group of nuns and monks kneeling and prostrating next to the Bodhi tree while echoing the prayers uttered by the monk leading the worship. I would like to have understood their ritual utterances but they were in a language I did not recognize. (Sadly, I am only fluent in one language which is a curse inherited by many of us born and raised in the US.) I did not even recognize the script on the cover of this woman’s book.
