Watch Why Monks Were Expelled From A Monastery In China


Published at 11:24am 3rd May 2016.

Three monks have been expelled from a monastery after being caught fighting in east China.

The footage, which shows the monks waving their arms and one hitting another with a mobile phone outside the Ningguo Temple, has gone viral online.

The crowd seem concerned and surprised at the incident, including tourists who were trying to calm down the flustered monks.

There had reportedly been a disagreement over 'managerial issues' at the temple.

Since the footage was released the monks have been expelled.

Quingchun Master, current abbot of Ningguo Temple said:

“Their actions go against the idea of harmony and peace of Buddhism.”
