Buddhist monk brawl caught on video

Some monks aren’t as peaceful as they seem.

A disagreement over management at a temple in China led to a fistfight among three monks, captured in a video that went viral.

The video shows two monks in brown robes grappling, while a third monk dressed in yellow circles around them, landing cheap shots.

The footage first appeared on a Chinese social media service, with a message purportedly written by the chief monk of Ningguo Temple in Yangzhou saying higher-ups at the temple decided to expel the three unruly monks, the South China Morning Post reports.

The newspaper, citing ThePaper.cn, added that the chief monk said the three got in a fight because they disagreed over management issues at the temple.
