In Thailand, Buddhist monks keep the tradition of Buddhism Theraveda. This religious line practices the precepts of asceticism on which Buddha lived and preached.
The monks dedicate their lives to serving the Community and may not receive money or remuneration of any kind, in exchange for the works that they perform.
Every morning at dawn, monks leave the Temple to collect the offerings and alms offered by people. They receive food for their support, usually rice, fruit and beverages, etc. The Thais make these offerings as a token of great reverence and gratitude towards their monks.
When the monks receive some money for their acts, it is always spent on charity purposes. The monks, in fact, cannot physically touch the money.
The money received by Luampo and his team in exchange for their teachings, is used for the construction of a Traditional Medicine Clinic for people with limited resources plus a plantation of medicinal herbs.
