The monks Alms Giving Ceremony in Luang Prabang, Laos. The idea of the alms giving is for the Buddhist monks to make merit and also to collect food for their one meal of a day. If you attend, be sure to read up on it and be respectful. It was sad to see so many tourists in the monk's faces with flashes and cameras making such a spectacle of something so sacred. #Wanderlust #carpediem #monks #almsgiving #buddhist #discoverlaos #asianadventure #TravelingCouple #FemaleExplorer #discoverasia #tradition #Culture #travelphotography
Tak bat
The ancient practice of waking before sunrise to donate food to the orange-robed Buddhist monks of Luang Prabang. Participating locals (and some tourists) hope that by doing so their need for spiritual redemption is fulfilled. 🙏🏽
The monks walk in silent meditation, in single file, with the oldest first, carrying their alms bowls, and collect food to last them through the day.

We awoke before sunrise again to catch the Alms giving ceremony through the streets of Luang Prabang. The Monks move quickly down the narrow roads to collect their goods for the day.

Please help the brethren of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Mexico City! They are providing such an amazing witness of Christian love to all of Mexico. We cannot leave them in to fend for themselves.
You can help them get food, fix their roof, and continue being a
wonderful blessing and healing presence in this suffering country. #Fund4Assistance #clergy #youth #missions #giving #donate #nonprofit #Orthodox #Faith #Orthodoxy #Православия #милосердие #ROCOR #Church #priest#Christians #priests #almsgiving #mission #pleasedonate #charity #Orthopost #OrthodoxChristian #EasternOrthodox #OrthodoxChurch #earthquake #mexicoearthquake #mexico #mexicocityearthquake

I woke up very early morning today to take part in a sacred Lao tradition the Buddhist Alms Giving Ceremony. Visitors are encouraged to participate as long as the level of respect is maintained throughout. Following the guidance of the local guide I kneeled down ready to give my offering to the monks; most common gifts include rice, fresh fruit and traditional sweet snacks. The idea of the alms giving for the Buddhist monks to make merit and also to collect food for their single meal of a day. There is always something to be thankfully for. In such moments you really think that you travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us...

We sat quietly at 5:30am on the opposite side of the pavement awaiting the most vivid procession of Laos. The drums began to beat for the call of hundreds of Saffron robed Tak Bat (Buddhist monks of Lao) to line the streets of Luang Prabang for the morning ritual of the giving of Alms #almsgiving #monks #takbat #luangprabang #laos

This young girl is doing the alms giving during the That Luang Festival.
This religious festival is held in and around That Luang, the national symbol of Laos. It is a three-day religious festival celebrated at full moon in November that starts with a wax castle procession at Wat Nong Bone and ends around the That Luang. The next day, there is a pre-dawn gathering of thousands of monks from Laos and Thailand. The festival finishes with a walk with candles inside the stupa and huge fireworks display.

Day 15: Up at 5am to see the Alms giving. A daily tradition in Luang Prabang where the locals (and sometimes tourists) hand out food to give to the monks, this will be their only meal of the day 😳! We could see why certain people are not happy with how certain tourists treat this ceremony...cameras flashing all in their faces, but then I guess the tourism here is doing so well because of unique things like this allowing the town (and the temples) to prosper, so it does work both ways, and the monks don't seem too bothered. After a couple more hours by the pool, we were picked up by minivan to take us South to Vang Vieng. First half of the ride was nice and scenic, but once into the mountains it became pretty scary; roads barely drivable, the clouds creating the tiniest visibility and cliff edges with no barriers, you couldn't even see how far down it was due to the clouds. Anyway here safe and sound. Big day of tubing tomorrow 👌🏻 #almsgiving #luangprabang #laos #buddhism #monks #monksinthemoshpit #travel #travelling #travelgram #instatravel #backpackers #backpacking #tourist #wanderlust #honeymoon #travelshirts #shirtsabroad
