Re: ''Controversial monk stripped of his robes'' (BP, July 14). 

So what? The infamous Yantra was also stripped of his robes years ago after bilking his parishioners for millions and was leading a double life. He is now living in Los Angeles thumbing his nose at the Sangha Council.

Top monks in Thailand live like the cardinals in the Vatican. Many of them do not know ''humility, poverty'' or anything else. I've seen chauffeured monks in Bangkok with outriders in front of their Benzes.
