In Europe, a Theravada monk couldn’t bear a woman in his presence wearing a hat. He turned his dhamma talk to the importance of not disrespecting the monk. The woman became the centre of attention for the whole room and slowly left the room never to return. She sobbed the moment she was out of the monk’s presence, as she couldn’t remove her hat because she was a self-conscious cancer sufferer with no hair.
