Ordination is an essential part of life for all male Buddhists. The individual cultivates merit that carries over into the next life and receives many benefits for his present life. Furthermore, he gains knowledge, wisdom, a greater understanding of the world, both socially and economically as well as physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Those who are ordained are not merely individuals who shave their heads and wear monks' robes, they must train, practice, and embody the teachings of Lord Buddha."

Phrabhavanaviriyakhun (Phra Phadet Dattajeevo)
