My wife says this is the 'money shot' or at least a very cool photo. After this event we were lucky enough to be able to sit down with some of the monks and talk with them. Surprisingly one, before he was a monk, had worked in Nashville for a shortwhile as an engineer. Very interesting indeed.

yes, it seemed there was no problem to photograph them. however the monks walk very fast and they do not want to be bothered much. but we were lucky to see so many of them in this festival where 50 women became jain monks. interestingly enough, the men monks walk around naked, but the women monks wear white saris. also, apperantly these monks never use a barber nor cut their hair, they pull their hair out. also, when they eat, people feed them food in their hands and the monks eat the food from their hands. very interesting. I am very lucky to have experience this.

Great picture, To me the 'sky clad' monks on the pictures looks more vulnerable then an average man on a nude beach. I was wondering if they are more aware of their nudeness with all those women around them.

The women in the background are called 'mothers' or mattas (spelling?) and they removed all of their hair on their body by pulling it out [B]by hand[/B], if you can believe that. The men do the same to.
