"Where are the monks?"

"Before September, there were over 30,000 monks in Rangoon alone. Now there are 6,000. Where are the monks? That is the question."

- Ashin Nayaka, visiting scholar at Columbia University and a founder of the Buddhist Missionary Society in Jackson Heights, in today's New York metro. The article recommends visiting http://www.burmesemonks.org/ for more information; unfortunately, the story is not available online.
