Vy having her head shaved
Yesterday we were out and about visiting 14 of the children in one of our sponsorship programs. We also visited another girl we plan to help.
When we arrived to see Vy, who is 10 years old and a Buddhist novice, she was in the process of having her head shaved. Buddhist nuns shave their heads every full and new moon. In Vietnam the Mahayana novices keep a little hair, a reminder that they are still partly of the world.
