who was this? I didn't realise there were any monks at Shaolin temple UK, is it the one in Tuffnel park?
You do understand that anyone, under the right tutelage, can be come a monk?
Anyone can be ordained a monk that I am aware of, maybe at McShaolin they skip the religious training requirement of being a monk.
Told? Okay, we aren't going to screw up this thread with a debate, by one novice and a guy who heard arguing, about what monks can and can't do.
