Big Bad Voodoo

The monks from Thailand can be seen using wireless headphones in video

They also appear to have designer bags and Aviator-style sunglasses

Office of National Buddhism is investigating after clip was posted on Youtube

There are misdeeds and corruption in every organized religion. I think some if not many become monks, join monasteries, become priests, preachers and mullahs because that kind of life may seem easier to them than struggling to earn a living in the outside world.

I think this is just an example of human nature on display. It should be expected, but this doesn't mean all monks or priests are of the same sort.

So..Buddhist monks are not supposed to be using that stuff but the Office of National Buddhism is?

Who filmed the vid? Another monk?

So what? Buddhism isn't a religion and using modern technology has nothing to do with spirituality or the lack thereof.

Totally silly...

True, but they are supposed to shed material possessions. Using iPods and other "designer" gear shows a general lack of respect for the lifestyle they are supposed to be upholding.

Doesn't make them bad people for refusing to totally buy into the whole "life of poverty" thing.
