A better image of the woman running across the road would have been much nicer.

I can't give you any change. Change only comes from within.

This reminds me of how money is the only thing that keeps me from having a fulfilling life...

Don't get deceived. They are not true buddhism monks. They pretend to be monks and cheat money from people. They are organized swindlers.

No they are not organized swindlers. The monk who can't speak japanese dressed in orange in Asakusa, asking money n English exclusively to tourists for an orphanage in Myanmar, this guy is a fraud.
