VIETNAM 2013 #35

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Late afternoon, the young monks go to school and study. When walking the grounds of Wat Khuone pagoda, I was intrigued by a monk getting into his robe. It took him about 8 minutes and the various versions show it’s is quite a difficult task.

The “uttarasanga” or “kashaya” robe is a large rectangle, about 6 by 9 feet (1.80m by 2.74m) which is wrapped around the body to cover both shoulders.

A most interesting set, Jean-Noel, it looks a very complicated garment to put on. Carol

Looks to be quite a palaver getting it just right: fine set documenting the activity and it surprises me that he did no seem to mind the procedure being captured, with him doing so out in the open.
