Incredible Video - Flying Monks of Bangkok !

From floating nuns to flying monks. The Buddha’s Face blog keeps to its remit of bringing you the weird , strange , crazy and I hope sometimes inspiring images, videos and information about the world’s most meditative and peaceful religion - Buddhism. Buddhism is the state religion of Thailand and monks sometimes just like the rest of us need to use planes.

In fact monks in their saffron robes can often be upgraded by Thai airways – such is the reverence of Thai people for those that have abandoned worldly pleasures !

In the following video we can see a large procession of monks at Bangkok’s International Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) getting ready to do I know not what!

"Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence." Buddha
