Females that wish to follow the order can become nuns and don the white robes. In your case I don't think you'd survive shaving your head or wearing white after labor day :) In Thailand there is only 1 legitimate female Buddhist monk although there is a movement to change this.

And although it is undertaken by many followers they really only try to maintain the 5 precepts.

Does the lent season apply only to the monks and not to the people? Also, does a public celebration take place at the beginning of the lent or is it taken place privately within the group of monks in the temple. It is always nice to learn of others cultures and religions. thanks for posting this article. That was quite interesting. Does the lent season apply only to the monks and not to the people?
