The Monastic Souls

Divine Journey of Monks

Monastic souls means a life of humility, obedience, isolation, silence, prayer, and renunciation of our own desires in order to live as free sons and daughters of God, guided by the Holy Spirit who speaks through our leaders, our rule, and the inspirations of his grace within our hearts.

Monks life is different from other people. Unlike common people ,monks lead his life of limits,self-control and inner cultivation. The red shawl and the shaven head is theme of their daily reflection

Monastery life

In societies of Buddhist monks are commonly respected by everyone. In Buddhist religion most families have sons who are either monks or were a monks at once in their life. Monks usually live in caves or in solitary huts for meditation,but  occasionally they live in monasteries with other groups of monks. It’s always interesting to watch monks doing religious rituals and offering prayers loudly in full of faith.
