Theme is often used in place of the pali 'nimitta' (as it is in your sutta quote).
Online research of nimitta will lead pleeeenty wheres.

Re: Pants for stay at a monastery.

Martial art 'gi' pants are good for meditation and work. Most I've seen have a gusseted crotch, which is what I love most about them. Material thickness, type of fit and color varies. Easy to find used online.

Negatives: No pockets, unless you make one.

Re: Mindfulness of pongs and whiffs

How about a nice long sort of permanent sage burn while the other cleaning is going on. It might even transmogrify the stank over time.

It's time to move ahead, leave the leaves and books behind, and start carving dhamma into stone wherever we can.
