Who are the monks? How do you greet them?

The monks are ordained and trained in the ancient Theravada Buddhist tradition. You can recognize them as they wear robes and shave their heads. The only thing you really need to know about interacting with them is that they don’t shake hands or hug. You can greet them with a smile or by placing your palms together in front of your chest. They are available to answer any questions you have about meditation or Buddhism.
Now people in St. Helens and around with all backgrounds have the opportunity to benefit from interacting daily with fully ordained Theravada Buddhist monks.
