Shaving Heads of Child Monks 
On the morning of May 1st, with eleven days to go before Buddha’s birthday, a group of 7 boys about 5-6 years old took part in a haircutting ceremony at Jogye Temple in Seoul’s Jongno-gu. The nation’s largest Buddhist order held the “Child Monk Haircutting ? Initiation Rites” as part of a program for young boys entering the Buddhist priesthood.
