Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)
Novitiate ceremonies in MyanmarWe visited Myanmar in January and February this year, and in several cities we ran across groups of young boys and girls during their novitiate ceremonies. Some groups were at the temples, some were riding horses on their way to family celebrations. They were all beautifully dressed like princes and princesses, as they would soon be giving up all earthly goods to join monasteries. What an amazing experience!
