Monks/Nuns

Recommended Posts

Tashi Delek! :D

 

How does one become a monk or a nun?

 

What do you have to have and what do you have to promise not to do?

 

Are there more ranks? If they are what are promises of the others?

 

Best regards

Tashi Delek,

 

One become monk or nun by taking some vows, after agreement from one's own Root Lama.

 

Please read the text about this first, and ask your questions - if any left - after: HERE

 

All the best, Gelong T. Shenphen

There is also one other thing I'm intersted. It's not about the monks or/and nuns but is more about the refuge.

 

When is one ready to take the refuge? And what are his/her obligations when they take refuge?

 

Also when I was reading the text that given on above link I was wondering how does one remember all the obligations and vows when they receive them to hold? Eventhough they are written I do not understand in what way a person takes them... After refuge what possibilities do one have? I hope I'm not confusing.... 8O

 

 

Best regards
