Kid Monk
Contest Directions: This Thursday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Ordination of little children into priesthood is quite common in Buddhism. In this regard there's a lot of questions and controversy whether it's OK to let parents make life-long decisions for kids as young as 10 and send them to become monks at such early age. Even if a child agrees, he may not realize nor fully know that such choice implies life long commitments like celibacy, absence of family, and many limitations due to the monks' code of conduct. In the resent years the children monk controversy is especially elevated by the numerous cases of child abuse reported in Buddhist monasteries. Most psychologists agree that such important life choices as becoming a monk should probably be made at a grown up age.
Photoshop this photo of a kid monk any way you wish. Some examples are - make this kid wear fashionable clothes, place him in some unusual environment, or make him run some errands. (Image credit: Joan Campderrˇs-i-Canas)
