As of 15:23 this afternoon(Malaysian time),Ralf became Ven.Dhammaratana.
Ytrog,believe me it is a whole new experience learning how to put these robes on properly.
One problem that guys have is that they are not used to wearing what is essentially a skirt.
While there is a type of belt to hold this up if you wear it slightly too low then when you start climbing stairs the front can sometimes get caught under your foot.This can start to bring it down(so speaks the voice of experience)The top robe has nothing holding it place and you really have to get the hang of how to put it together.One robe makes three different types of robe.
I recall reading Phra Farang and he spoke of the first time he went to(I think)morning chanting.
When he got up from chanting his lower robe remained on the floor.He said that as casually as he could he picked up the robe and with as much dignity as he could find under the circumstances and made his way back to his room.
And crawling on the planets face,some insects called the human race.
