Thailand’s Buddhist monks are under investigation following complaints sparked by a video showing some flying on a private jet.
The YouTube video showed one of the monks was wearing stylish aviator sunglasses, carrying a luxury brand travel bag and sporting a pair of modern looking wireless headphones. It attracted criticism from Buddhists nationwide.
Office of National Buddhism director general Nopparat Benjawatananun said that the agency saw the video and had warned the monks from a monastery in Thailand’s north east not to repeat the lavish behaviour.
It plans to monitor monks nationwide.
With the world’s largest Buddhist
cheap ray ban outlet population, Thailand has attempted to help Buddha’s 2,600 year old doctrine stand the test of time through a variety of means, including imposing a ban on the sale of alcohol on religious holidays.
The efforts, however, are sometimes tainted by the monks themselves.
Last year, about 300 out of 61,416 Buddhist monks and novices in Thailand were reprimanded in several cases removed from the monkhood because of their misconduct, ranging from alcohol consumption, having sex with women, to extortion.
The office also received complaints about monks driving cars, and scams and false claims of black magic uses by monks.Articles Connexes：
