Giving up your family and phone for life as a monk  - BBC News



Hundreds of young people belonging to India’s Jain community have begun renouncing the material world to become monks who always walk barefoot, eat only what they receive as alms and never bathe or use modern technology. The BBC’s Priyanka Pathak explores why.

  1. May the Universe bless the Hindus/Jains/Buddhists/Sikhs etc. … They are no problem in this world … It is the adherents to Abrahamic muck and the militant Atheists who create all the sh#t in this world.

  2. wow, the dedication and passion to leave it all behind is very admirable. Interesting that they brush before they sit and close their mouth so not even microorganisms will be killed. What about all the microorganisms that are killed every day in your digestive system, the ones that are on your skin/body, is that not killing?

  3. 'Look before you leap'…..
    Charity begins at home.
    Art of love, compassion, affection, tolerance and co-existence can be achieved only if we live with our family and friends.
    I feel sorry for those innocent kids. Does God test us in this manner ???
    No, certain beliefs have led people astray.

  4. Electric is bad, yet bought things made by electronic ventured tech: shelter, cloth and food, don't tell me they hand made everything. This is pure hypocrisy and idiocy.

    And life is not about "phone". Are indian that simplistic?

    How about medical, and all technology to help provide basic human needs like food and shelter? All of those needs technology.

    I bet when saw one of them passed put, first think they yell, "Call ambulance!!" hahaahahahaha

  5. I wud have loved to do this too. It’s the best profession these days-lots of money, follower, respect n power (travel the world, only have to speak well-no stressful job, work-life balance) n get promoted to b a politician.

  6. This is the most ironical “luckiest” mum I’ve seen so far! She herself did not choose such a life for herself but is happy to let her son live it! You dont have to be a monk or take deeksha to become a good human being. If you believe in karma, then, God gave you this human life to live it to its full potential and experience the life of a human being which is beautiful. No need for all this, seriously…
