He has one sister and one of her son's is also a monk in Thailand. His parents are incredibly proud of him and his decision to become a monk. Ven. Wisanu explained that the monks live in a house nearby the temple and spend their days studying, meditating, chanting, teaching, prayer and receiving people coming to the temple to give offerings.
The monks of Wat Buddharam have two meals a day (breakfast and lunch) and rely on food provided by Buddhist followers.
Thank you so much to Ven. Wisanu for allowing me to sit with him, answer my questions and take some photographs. It was a wonderful experience.
