CHIANG MAI: -- This monk did not take it well when a Chiang Mai man refused to give him a donation.

Photos of a mad monk giving a non-devotee the middle finger after his request for a THB100 donation was rejected went viral this week, ending another year of scandalous Buddhism business in Thailand.

The group of monks in the photo were said to be walking around and asking for donations by a shopping mall in Chiang Mai.

“I don’t know what they were trying to do, but they asked me for THB100. I looked at their desperate faces and didn’t say anything,” Facebook user Chayuti Janrakongtong wrote.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

He just said: "Bless your backside, my son"

Isn't that a sacred mudra sign he is throwing up there?

Well done Mr. Chayuti. It must be a hard to think and act outside the normal Thai paradigm. Wai, bow, scrape, get on your knees, spit out money and food, no eye contact. Pffft. Bloody nonsense.

This religion krap has gone too far and is as corrupt as any other man-made power and control mechanism.

Fundamentally, I don't see much wrong with Buddhism.

What I do see is wrong is the Thai mis-application of Buddhism.

It is hard to escape the accusation of "They are just men in saffron robes" when Thais can go and be a monk for a month - and then revert to self after leaving the wat. Very often the reasons for becoming a monk are flawed and done under family pressure.

He must have been quick on the draw to get that photo.

Or more likely the finger was a response to the photo taking.

Maybe because he wanted the cash for himself, not the religion.

So the monk's donation scam didn't work on one alert citizen.

He should stick to selling winning lottery numbers.

so?... monks shouldn't forgive? be compassionate?or understanding?

That act was just rude and impolite, no matter what.

Of course it's just my opinion.
