Mahaa Assapura Majjhima Muulapa.n.naasa, Mahaayamaka Vagga MN.039 M.i.271-80 19/205 true monkhood Since monks are called recluses (samana), they must train themselves to be true recluses: they should be conscientious and scrupulous, pure in deed, word and thought, restrained in the senses, moderate in eating, ever-vigilant, mindful and self-possessed, striving to remove themselves from the Five Hindrances and cultivating the jhanas. Such and almsman can truly be called a recluse -- an ideal recluse.
