While trying to escape from touristic areas of Thailand I had opportunity to be hosted by this Buddhist monk. In his own forest temple, where he lives alone, we discussed the Buddhism, philosophy and the mankind. For a few times, I joined him for traditional, early morning collection of food. While saying prays to the elderly women on the way to the surrounding rice fields he closed his eyes and I captured this picture.
Location: Near Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand
