“I wear the same maroon robes as all other monks. They are not very good quality and have been patched several times. If they were made of a single piece of good material, one would be able to sell them and get something for them. But in this way, one cannot do that. This reinforces our philosophy of detachment from worldly possessions. Like all other monks, I obey vows of poverty and have no personal possessions.” - Dalai Lama
