A little kid shows respect for a monk

This post shows a little girl kneeling down with her hands making a praying gesture or ‘sampeh’ before a monk to show respect.

The picture was uploaded by a Face-book page called Buddhism: Path to Peace, along with a description saying: “the Buddha’s message was simple but profound: ‘Neither a life ofself-indulgence nor one of self-mortification can bring happiness. Only a middle path, avoiding these two extremes, leads to peace of mind, wisdom, & complete liberation from the dissatisfactions of life,’ a quote from Bhante H Gunaratana.

It has nearly reached 2,000 likes already, and was shared more than 300 times with many comments. It seems this photo was appreciated by many Facebook users from various nations, with many showing their appreciation for the post.

Ul Ly says: “The baby respects the monk, congratulation.” RakeshTanchangya says simply: “I’m proud of you.”

Though not everyone felt the same, Diogo Vega writes, “That’s not good. To force children to believe in what YOU think is important to YOU.”

Causing Shiv Rajkumar, to respond with; “hi! Buddhism doesn’t force you to believe anything but it shows the path, its up to the follower to believe or not.”
