Thai Buddhist Monks paid a visit to meet His Excellency Suhail Mohd Al Zarooni, Guinness World Record Holder, Chairman Al Zarooni Foundation & the Emirati Entrepreneur at His residence.
His Excellency Suhail Al Zarooni interacted with the Buddhist Monks from “UAE Meditation Center”. Meeting them, Suhail Al Zarooni said that Lord Buddha has always shown the path away from wars.
The Buddhist Monks described Al Zarooni that Why do Buddhist Monks wear Orange Robes and Shave their Heads? The Lord Buddha gave this reflection about it…The saffron (for a more appropriate name for the color) robes monk wear dates back centuries. Orange was chosen mainly because of the dye available at the time. The tradition stuck and orange is now the color of choice for Theravada Buddhist followers in Southeast Asia, as opposed to a maroon color for Tibetan monks. The robes themselves are meant to symbolize simplicity and detachment of materialism.
A monk’s hair is shaved off so to symbolize simplicity and detachment of materialism. Yes, it’s as simple as that. How many times have you stood in front of the mirror and combed your hair? Or styled it? Or complained about a bad hair day? This is exactly what does not happen with a shaved head.
The Buddhist Monks presented the sweets and a memento to Al Zarooni as a token of Love and honor. Suhail Al Zarooni thanked the Buddhist Monk Society for visiting him at his place and for the honor given by them. He further said, the simplicity and humbleness of the Buddhist Monks has touched Him.
Suhail Al Zarooni said taking note of the contribution of Buddhism in the cultural upliftment of mankind globally and considered it to be a uniting force for love & peace and a symbol of sacrifice.
