Headlock Monk


From Naewna, February 25, 2016
Phra Methee Dhammacharn: You will invite me to be informed of the charges. Be careful, it will be like one drop of honey.
Caption: Full of honey in his month.

[This refers to Thai idiom “a one drop of honey” meaning one issue causing huge damage. This is like the English saying “a little fire burns up a great deal of corn.”
Phra Methee Dhammacharn conducted a seminar to show support for Somdej Chuang to be the new Supreme Patriarch. Monks, supporting the appointment, took surprise action and overwhelmed a military checkpoint to occupy a Buddhist administration building. Photos of a monk holding a soldier in a headlock caused criticism from the public over this unBuddhist-like violence.]
