  • While we were in Thailand back in May, we got the opportunity of a lifetime. The most venerable Thai monk, Phra Maha Vudhijaya Vajiramedhi, allowed us to spend a day with him and got TD to become a monk for 24 hours. He and everyone at the Center were beyond kind and welcoming and it'll definitely be an experience we'll never forget.

    It’s so unfair, that guy didn’t even want to do it. They should’ve let someone do it who actually wanted to. I would’ve loved to try it but I would’ve wanted to do it for much longer not just 1 day.

    You can live like a monk for 24 hours without leaving your home. Go back for at least a month.
