The history of Monk Bowl is very simple. The monk walks barefooted into a village from house to house, not favouring rich or poor neighbourhoods, accepting, but not requesting, what is freely donated, dropped into his bowl. Everything dropped into the bowl, according to ancient tradition, is simply mixed together, since monks are asked not to favour one food over another, and by extension should not favour one blend of foods over another. The monk eat what is served.
