Why is it lottery winners either have a dream or find the winning numbers in a tree or such. Being a monk is supposed to mean refraining from desire...and money, now he has fame and fortune. Good luck to him as we are all human beings underneath and what is number one ;)

Thai monk upgrades to millionaire by winning THB6 million from lottery


pica@ Thai News Agency

A 41-year-old monk in the Bangkok outskirts made headlines when he announced that he won first prize in the lottery. But he has raised some controversy as well.

Being a monk is supposed to mean refraining from desire...and money. However, Phra Prawit Techapalo, of Cheepakhao Temple in Samut Sakhon, said he bought multiple lottery tickets every month.

Phra Prawit, who has been a monk for 10 years, interpreted a lucky number from the textures of a teak tree at his temple. This time, his number was 84.

Phra Prawit bought ticket number 638684 and five other tickets at Mahachai Market. It turns out, he won the first prize and received THB6 million cash.

He said he would use the money to buy a house for his mother and save the rest to pay for his child’s tuition. He will also donate money to hold a funeral for the temple's abbot who passed away, Morning News reported.

Buddhism teaches that whatever happens does so because of a cause or causes and not due to luck, chance or fate. People who are interested in luck are always trying to get something - usually more money and wealth. The Buddha teaches us that it is far more important to develop our hearts and mind
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.
