Nen Ordination

This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly shows a family in the U.S. sending off their pre-teenage son to become ordained as a nen, or novice monk, in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism. Theravada, one of the two major schools of Buddhism, is considered the earliest record of the Buddha's teachings. It is the predominant religion of Thailand, Mynamar (Burma), Cambodia, and Sri Lanka, and has also blossomed in the West.
