You can get an amazing array of Buddhist young monks, there's one cold in the snow, which I can't find now, and I'm tortured by it.
The idea that a child is leading a monk's life is amazing, except it's hard to imagine a child chose to be away from their parents. So perhaps they are orphans or unwanted children. There are traditions that have kids take a monk holiday, where they are a monk for a week, like in Korea.
Are they looking at things with beginners minds?
