The Young Monks

Vaishnava Monk or Brahmachari is a person in monastic order whose attention is fixed on the Supreme being and he dedicates his life to the welfare of the people. Brahmacharya literally means Achara or conduct that leads to the realisation of Brahman (God). Saffron dhoti, shaved head with sikha, Tulasi neck-beads and tilaka markings are special features of a Vaishnava monk.
