Novice buddhist monks in Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, MyanmarThese novices are standing in the famous old teak wood Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery, near Inle Lake in Myanmar's Shan State. During Thingyan, the Burmese New Year, many Burmese boys celebrate shinbyu, a special rite of passage when a boy enters a monastery for a short time as a novice monk. They live the tough life of the monks: waking up early, washing with cold water and strict discipline. As the monks do, they have to buy their food with money given as alms. They are supposed to have only one meal a day, but I saw many child novices going discreetly, but frequently to the little shops to buy chocolate bars! Kids remain kids, even when they are novices!

Heho - Shweyanpyay Monastery

Built in the early 19th century, the red-painted teak Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery in Nyaung Shwe, Myanmar, is focussed on providing a home – with religious and secular education – for boys from poor families in the region.

 

The central sanctuary has an arched walkway all around. Light angles sharply into the dark corridor. The walkway is dotted with niches – each one with its own Buddha image.

Shwe Yan Pyay Monastery is a 19th century monastery built entirely of teak, painted red, that today remains in full operation as school and home for young novice monks and their teachers. Photographers are drawn to it for its unique oval windows – and the incredible light found inside - and for the white stucco temple next to it with its red interior and thousands of niches, each holding a small Buddha. Add to this, young novice monks, cloaked in reds and oranges, and it is almost overwhelming.
