Little Angels

The Real Life Stories of Thai Novice Monks




An account - both honest and moving - of disadvantaged thai youths searching for happier lives by becoming buddhist monks.

The real life stories of the novice monks featured in LITTLE ANGELS reflects the lives of many youths in rural Thailand who are trapped in the vicious circle of poverty, broken homes, illiteracy and drug abuse. When all else fails, Buddhism becomes their last resort: providing them with physical shelter and spiritual refuge. It heals their childhood traumas and gives them a moral framework for living and a better outlook on life. Each individual story, heartrending as it may be, subtly shows what Phra Peter Pannapadipo sees and wishes others to appreciate.

About the Author

Phra Peter Pannapadipo

Peter Robinson became a Buddhist monk at the age of forty-five. As Phra Peter Pannapadipo, he founded the Students' Education Trust - a charity to help improvished students and novice monks continue their higher education. Monks cannot earn money or directly fundraise, so after ten years Phra Peter temporarily disrobed from the monkhood to establish SET as a Foundation in Thailand.
