  1. Thank you both.

    Monks who seek offerings on the street need permits in Taiwan to avoid the “fake baba” syndrome that happens in some places.

    • Thanks Georgie! Hope all is well with you! Things here going well…a few birthing pains so to speak but everything will be golden…just the process sometimes…:)

  2. Now that is one of the saddest things I’ve heard of! Posing as a fake monk!:(
    Thanx for the info Neesha,learn something new every day!

    • Lots of fake Baba’s in Nepal and India…they cruise the street and if you take their photo demand money…some are real and some just dress up as Baba’s…quite the racket.

  3. Leads one to ponder…. how would you be “assessed” in order to qualify for a True Monk Permit? A meditation test seems almost defeatist….
