Based on the link above to a news report from Times, the alleged Thai monk is also being investigated for money laundering and raping of an under age girl of 14 yrs of age. If these were true, then he must be rightfully punished for these offences. A monk no matter how many vows he holds, is not above the law.
Travelling in first class and using branded luggages etc, if done without any wrong intentions should not be judged as the wrong thing to do . The issues involved in the "scandal" must be carefully discussed and contemplated.
