When this definition is reported to the Buddha he says that by this definition a tiny babe on its back would make a good recluse. No, says the Buddha, a triumphant recluse is one who is an adept of the Noble Eightfold Path and in utter knowledge and utter deliverance and he goes on to describe such a recluse in detail.
