  1. Ven. Dr Ashin Indaka from Myanmar charged RM400 per who want to be monk at SAMNAK SAMBODHI TAMAN DESA JAYA BUDDHIST TEMPLE...ANYONE GO THERE, MUST CAREFUL...THIS IS MAKE BUDDHIST SHAMEFUL...Buddha is never asks money from his students..A lot people unhappy with that cost...

    Buddhism, a religion over 2,000 years old, focuses on the here and now. Buddhists live in the present, don't worship a creator god and teach basic tenants that are straightforward and practical. If you want to become a monk, you must meditate, learn the teachings of the Buddha and practice the Buddhist religion.
    But Ven. Dr Ashin Indaka make easy or make short cut for who want to be monks, he waited for Chinese New Year and just give yellow robes to devotees and shave head to observe precepts.
