No Pain, No Jain

“Live and let live” is the mantra of Shree Prayatna Sagar Ji, a Jain monk who is currently in Bangkok on his first trip out of India. A monk for 36 years, Shree Prayatna Sagar Ji aims to spread the message of “Ahimsa” (non-violence), as he joins the city’s Digambar Jain community in prayer and leads a hair-pulling ceremony – a practice Jains believe teaches them to endure pain. For more information on the monk’s visit, call 02-233-7894. Video by Chumporn Sangvilert.
