Today I watched Youtube and saw the news about an amazing 3-yrs-old boy who loves to "play" monk. His play started quite early, when he was only 8 months old! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z03ofTK9ZHohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uQl233A ... re=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtQ9VhYp ... re=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z03ofTK9 ... re=relatedThis little boy's name is Khumpii(Khumpii means Buddha's bible) Sinthusut; he is 3 yrs old now. Khumpii loves to "play monk", and his acting has been more serious than a child play! For example, early in the morning he carries a bowl to receive alms-food from his grandma. After he has got his food, he then chants a Pali blessing. Khumpii is fond of listening to the monks'chanting at a nearby temple; he normally stays with the monks after coming back from school. His extraordinary faith in the Buddha has been amazing; once he even went to sit alone in front of the Buddha statue in the temple,all by himself. The delighted Abbot then gave him a samanera robe as a gift. It is one of his favorite things to wear after school.This little boy can chant many Buddha's Pali-Gathas real well, and he loves to play monk for people in his neighborhood as you may have seen in the Youtube clips.He can't be ordained yet, because he's only 3 yrs old (must be 7 yrs old to be a samanera).Believe it or not!!
yawares loves this little boy 'play' monk.
