We monks should often reflect that being monks we are no longer householders -- we should adopt the manners and conduct expected of a monk; 2. We monks should often reflect that we must rely on others for our food -- we should make ourselves easy to support; 3. We monks should often reflect that there are still many more manners of body and speech that we must go on to imporove; 4. We monks should often reflect that we must criticize ourselves, be able to take criticism from ourselves, as to the purity of our Precepts; 5. We monks should often reflect that from those suitably wise, we must take criticism, be able to take criticism, as to the purity of our Precepts; 6. We monks should often reflect that we must be separated from all loved ones and treasured things; 7. We monks should often reflect that we are the makers of our own karma -- if we do good, we will receive good -- if we do evil, we will receive evil; 8. We monks should often reflect that the days and nights pass by -- right now how are we spending our time?; 9. We monks should often reflect whether or not we are contented with our seclusion, and; 10.
