Maybe.  Or maybe we should all be studying tree textures.

I agree with Todd!!! Smash

        The Monk is not a liar concerning his explanation of how he chose # 84.  What he is actually implying relative to tree textures, is that his "Divine Intuition" was triggered by viewing tree textures, and the # 84 simply "came to him" intuitively >>> to play this particular number [# 84].  It's all a matter of Intuition and Interpreting Signs and Symbols, in everyday life !!!

          I agree.

            I guess things have changed with the belief that monks are supposed to forgo luxuries such as money. This is the second story about monks and the lottery.

            Back on Jan. 12, 2016, Todd reported about a 61-year-old monk in Philadelphia who was at a Sunoco gas station store on South Broad Street buying lottery tickets from a machine on Jan. 3 when an unidentified black male snatched $350 in cash from the monk's hands and ran out of the door.

               It is wrong to condemn any religious person for earning money outside the donations they receive. As long at it does not break the laws like those tv evangelists did. 

               A monk, Pastor, Priest who has talent in music, oratory, or any other blessings should be able to market them. 

               A citizen author may make $50 million off his books and film adaptations. Why should a professional religious person not be able to profit off his/her works?

               People vote with their dollars, yen, marks, pounds, rubels, etc.

               I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.

                There  could be some truth to all of this but it would involve LP as well. This monk could have studied trees, and having access to a computer he could have simple clicked on " systems"  on the LP page and under "convert words to numbers" added in the following " appearance of tree trunk & texture is rough to the touch." Put in those specific words & his winning numbers would appear.Smile 

                * Mystery solved.

                  The monk is a liar.

                  He got lucky just like everyone else that has ever won a prize.

                  Just another lottery winner with another creative story of how they won.

                  No, he's telling the truth. He got his number from tree bark.

                  It was, however, pure coincidence that the number drawn happened to match his number.

                    Everyone has a winning strategy and his just happen to finally work. Call it luck or fate but his ship has came in.

                            Thats not a bad idea. I wonder if it will work with scotch? or... maybe I'll get my next set of numbers from
                            Packers jerseys....it worked for some lady in Texas awhile back.

                              I did not think the Monks were allowed off of the premises to participate in worldly activities.

                              l thought so myself but given that his allowed his pic to be taken,  tells me that he doesn't give a rat's A' whether they boot him from the monastery or not.
