Alms Monk is an iron piece. The Buddhist ritual is to place fresh food into the alms bowls that monks carry with them. Since rice is a staple , families cook it fresh from home and put a portion in plastic bags to give, or you can buy a prepared dish from local street vendors. A monk may be a person who decides to dedicate his life to serving all other living beings, or to be an ascetic who voluntarily chooses to leave mainstream society and live his or her life in prayer and contemplation.
