Shinbyu is the Burmese term for a novitiation ceremony in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism. It is deemed the most important duty that parents owe to their son by letting him go forth and embrace the legacy of the Buddha, join the Sangha (monastic community) and become immersed in the teachings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, at least for a short while, perhaps longer if not for the rest of his life. A boy may become a novice on more than one occasion. Those who are not blessed with a male child will seek for an orphan boy or a boy from very poor families in order to receive this special dispensation by the Buddha and hence gain great merit by the act. Shinbyu may well be regarded as a rite of passage or coming of age ceremony as in other religions. Allowing a son to spend some time however short it may be, in a Buddhist monastery is regarded by most Buddhists as the best religious gift that his parents can give him and it is believed to have a lasting effect on his life.

The novitiates-to-be wear a royal outfit before ordination to re-enact Rahula's (Buddha's son) rejection of a princely life in exchange for a life of self-detachment. We came across this ceremonial procession as they stopped at an ancient gate to the city of Bagan to say prayers at a small wayside shrine. This is a very open and public ceremony and they were very pleased that we wanted to take photographs.

A very interesting foreword, one which I gleaned many snippets which I am sure will come in handy for playing Trivial Pursuits or attending the local Pub Quiz. The accompanying photograph is simply breathtaking, beautifully composed, processed and presented.

Thank you for your time with the commentary - it was very interesting and informative to read.

I've always considered Buddhism to be the gentlest and most tolerant of religions - to take part in it if only for a short time would definitely impart some of its values on a young man.

This young boy looks very pleased to be part of the ceremony - proud of the fact. Wonderful photojournalism; down to the reflected sparkles of light on his face from the decoration on the clothing.

Another great travel image Dave! Love the tight comp framing him on 3 sides by furry head, handle and parasol which help draw attention to him, as does his finery. He looks caught between being really pleased and slightly embarrassed at being the centre of attention which gives added facial interest. The disparity between his clothes and the shady slightly rund down backdrop creates mystery which is only explained by your highly informative blurb. Another triumph from your travels, this one!
