Monks from the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery - Singapore
A close up of two of the Buddhist Monks leading the procession around the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery. There is a group of hundreds of people following. They all take 3 steps & then drop all the way to the ground.
This is in honour of Vesak Day (also known as Buddha Day).
It is extremly hot & humid in the Equatorial climate and this is hard work! If you look LARGE On Black you can see the sweat on the Monks!
