The alms bowl
A begging bowl is a useful article in the daily activities of a monk. When he makes his morning rounds and receives food and gifts of the faithful, he wears the begging bowl and lid. The bowl is wrapped in a bag long strap passed over the shoulder of the monk.
The temple bowls are aligned to receive the gifts of the faithful. When holy water was prepared during ceremonies merit a begging bowl often serves as a container for holy water. The monks meditating in the forest eat in their bowl sitting on the ground.
These monks follow the austere practices and consider that sustenance is necessary and essential for life. They do not attach importance to food containers.
