A young novice does meditation on his bed, in an old Monastery in Myanmar. Following the path of meditation, Buddhist monks try to achive enlightenment. From a very young age on and with many sacrifices they become accustomed to follow precepts of a deep spiritual life, abandoning vices and bad behavior. To underline the enlightenment through meditation I placed a light behind the novice. note: lights are not digital created. copyright: 2011 andrea erdna barletta
