May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.

The main difference between the eight precepts of an Anagarika and the 10 precepts of a novice monk is the rule of not handling money. Therefore, anagarika ordinations usually take place in forest monasteries where the monastic rules, including the one on not handling money, are strictly followed.
