A Monk from Thailand is taking the Internet by storm. People can’t stop gushing over the muscular body of this monk. The monk is raising awareness about the health of monks and is asking people to donate healthier alms.
He is requesting people to refrain from donating sugary and fatty alms to monks, reports Coconuts Bangkok. Ever since his photos rocked the Internet, the social media has divided into parts. While some say that he should spend more time introspecting than growing biceps, others defend him by believing that he must have spent years lifting weights and joined the monastery only recently.
If sources are to be believed, a Facebook user page, Piak Rider, the monk was photographed back in 2011 before he gave up his monkhood to open his own restaurant. This Facebook post has been deleted now. As claimed, the deleted Facebook post reads:
“That monk hunk is a weightlifter who was just ordained for a few days, as many Thai men do at some point in their lives.”
