9780099484486: Little Angels: The Real Life Stories of Thai Novice Monks

The real-life stories of the novice monks in Little Angels reflect the lives of many youths in rural Thailand who are trapped in the vicious cycle of poverty, broken homes, illiteracy and drug abuse. When all else fails, Buddhism becomes their last resort: providing them with physical shelter and spiritual refuge. It heals their childhood traumas and gives them a moral framework for living and a better outlook on life. Each individual story, heartrending as it may be, subtly shows what Phra Peter sees and hopes to show to others: the 'human face' of Thai Buddhism.

From the Publisher:

AN ACCOUNT - BOTH HONEST AND MOVING - OF DISADVANTAGED THAI YOUTHS SEARCHING FOR HAPPIER LIVES BY BECOMING BUDDHIST MONKS.

About the Author:

Phra Peter Pannadipo became a Buddhist monk at the age of forty-five but now administers SET - the Students' Education Trust he set up for novices who wished to continue their education but cannot afford to do so. As monks cannot earn money or fundraise themselves, he elected to disrobe temporarily.
