    Monk disrobed after he is caught on camera, breaking the rules.
    Pattaya Police were called to the south end of Pattaya Beach Road at 4am on Saturday Morning after receiving complaints from members of the public regarding a monk who was receiving donations of food and money from Tourists drinking at Beer Bars which were still open. This contravenes rules relating to the practice of Buddist Monks and Police decided to gather video evidence and escorted the Monk to the nearby Chaimongkon Temple on the South Pattaya Road. The monk in question, Pra Tongpoon from Chayapoon Province came to Pattaya one week ago and explained to the Chief Monk of this temple that he did not reside in a Temple but stayed in a tent behind the Big C Supercenter in North Pattaya. The Chief Monk decided to disrobe the Monk who was handed to Police who are considering pressing criminal charges against the former Monk.

    so you cannot be an independant monk.
    if he calls himself a 'buddhist monk'
    then he must follow the code.
    how boring is that ?
