Two to three monks would take about 30-minutes to clean the entire space before the 5:00AM service began. I naturally assumed that those assigned to cleaning the floors must be the newer or inexperienced monks still in training. Why else would they be doing the menial work of cleaning floors? The next day, while I was attending the daily study session for the resident monks, to my surprise, I noticed the teacher and main speaker for the session was one of the monks that was cleaning the floor.
