Whenever one thinks of a Buddhist monk, an image of a calm and lean man donning orange attire comes to mind. The one we are talking about here too has adorned the outfit of a typical Buddhist monk but breaking stereotypes of a lean body. In Thailand, there is a Buddhist monk who has shared his pictures of a body exactly like that of a bodybuilder. The identity of the monk isn’t known but his pictures are spreading like wildfire on social media in Thailand as well as many other parts of the world. It is being reported that by sharing his pictures of a muscular body, he wants to raise awareness among people to donate healthier alms.
Since the source of the images is not known precisely, the possibility of him trying to convince monks to exercise to stay healthy and strong is also being contemplated by social media users and media houses. Also, he wants people to refrain from giving fattening alms such as sweets and salty foods as eating this type of food leads to an unfit body in terms of health as well as physique.
Some people have even contemplated that he would have been a weightlifter prior to being ordained because the kind of body he has requires years of training while some have criticized him for being vain. A Facebook post which is now deleted also shared these pictures in a post which became quite popular on the social media platform. Some media portals have stated that the caption with the photos said,

That monk hunk is a weightlifter who was just ordained for a few days, as many Thai men do at some point in their lives.
The post also suggested that the pictures are from the year 2011 and the man had embraced monk-hood only for a short period of time before he went on to open a restaurant. The truth behind the pictures is unknown but something that is certain is that the crazy peeps at the internet are going gaga over the super-hot monk and are sharing his pictures in a frenzy.
