    Vile monk caught on camera beating child (video clip)

    Vile monk caught on camera beating child (video clip)







    Vile monk now being hunted by Netizens.
    WARNING: UPSETTING CONTENT: Netizens are trying to hunt down the monk responsible for the beating so that he faces disciplinary action.

    A sickening video taken in a Buddhist temple shows the horrific beating handed to a child monk after they misbehaved during religious classes.

    In the clip, taken on a phone, an adult monk can be seen using a large stick to strike a young novice of maybe 12 or 13 years of age.

    He can be seen hitting him at least 10 times despite the desperate boy’s crying and pleading with the monk to stop.



    The video, posted on Facebook and viewed more than 3.5 million times, calls for help in identifying the location so that appropriate action can be taken against the monk.

    Horrific photographs of the boy’s wounds have also been released, showing terrible lacerations across his back.

    One of the principal Buddhist tenets, clearly forgotten by this vile monk, is ‘ahimsa’ which means ‘not to injure’, and this is a primary virtue in the faith.

    It is unclear where the clip was filmed but the dialect is thought to be from the North of Thailand.

    In most Buddhist countries it is normal for men and boys to spend some time in a temple as a novice monk before carrying on with normal life.

    When the parents entrust the boys or young men to the monks for a period of up to a year they expect the monks to teach the child the principal Buddhist tenets and generally take care of their children.

    Some Thai monks have recently come in for criticism about the accumulation of personal wealth.

    In 2013, one monk reportedly hired private planes and carried Louis Vuitton luggage on overseas shopping trips.

    That senior monk's as close to Buddhism as a dog's vomit.

    He deserves a thrashing for being a sadistic fraud.

    Worse than the beating with the stick is the b'stard pulling the boy's arm while he steps on his stomach.

    Cnut.

    Maybe he became a monk to escape child-abuse charges.

    ^Yep the spiritual backbone of this country comprised of drug addicts, murderers on the lam, and those heroic lads who 'fled the scene' of a serious accident.

    Makes one proud, don't it.

    So presumably the boy or his parents don't want to do anything?

    If its a small village, they will most like feel they have little or no recourse.

    They are probably aware that in the future they will need the services of the temple, and kicking up a fuss would only back fire on them.

    That being said, one does hope that this gets taken further by other less in fear of reprisals...

    From the OP;

    "One of the principal Buddhist tenets, clearly forgotten by this vile monk, is ‘ahimsa’ which means ‘not to injure’, and this is a primary virtue in the faith."

    Some Zen Buddhists have reportedly used a cane to strike monks slacking off in meditation, according to some accounts, otherwise, Buddhism has never encouraged institutionalized corporal punishment.

    Burmese Buddhist monks reportedly went OTT physically attacking Muslims, another instance of non-Buddhist action, something those monks will pay for for years, through loss of respect, a karmic result.

    Zen Buddhism provided the perfect philosophy for the warrior Samurai, as Buddha advocated "no un-necessary killing"

    Otherwise, there's absolutely NO justification in hitting a child as a punishment or a disciplinary method, ever.

    Although I reckon that the monk in the OP ought to be thrashed, that may have to wait until after, as he must now face himself and any internal discipline handed out by the abbot, make amends to his victim and/or leave the monkhood.

    You're joking, right? Do you really believe that this was an aberration, a departure from the norm?
    The only thing different from the hundreds of times he's done this is that it went public.
    Any discipline handed down by the abbot will be more along the lines of "Make sure there are no phones on during your teaching".

    Rubbish.
    "... the hundreds of times he's done this...", you say.
    Do you have anything to back up your claims? Of course not!

    Buddhism advocates against corporal punishment, which is not the case in Islam, where Islamic teachers beat and punish their students regularly.

    Buddhist monks don't thrash novices as a norm. If they did, the concept and practice of Buddhism would fall apart completely.

    Some monks break the rules in acquiring wealth, others smoke and drink, have sex, quarrel, fight, steal and commit murder, become katoeys and engage in other practices not conducive to Buddhism.

    When exposed, those monks are either disciplined by their abbot and wat, de-frocked or prosecuted by the state as criminals.

    Again, these actions aren't the norm, but aberrant behaviour on the part of monks not exercising the necessary self control required of a monk, as taught by Gautama.
