Temptations of a Monk 诱惑和尚 ...


Though resisting temptation is never easy, 
God promises to reward us for being obedient.


All men are tempted. 
There is no man that lives that can't be broken down, 
provided it is the right temptation, put in the right spot.
~Henry Ward Beecher, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit, 1887



Do you really think it is weakness that yields to temptation? 
I tell you that there are terrible temptations 
which it requires strength, strength and courage to yield to. 
~Oscar Wilde

Maybe they just think the color of the decoration matches their clothes' color ?

Are they monks from Myanmar?
Very interesting photos!
They look so much tempted by Christmas decoration:-)
There is no religious concern, they just liked beautiful lights!

No one is graduated in the art of life as has not been tempted.
Your photos tell the rest.
