Re: How not to disrobe as a monastic (experiences & tipps)

Re: Yoga at WPN

Oh, that is cool. :)

Doing only in the kuti won't be a problem. Even here, in the city, i don't like to do this in public...

How a bikkhu name is chosen?

I was just wondering.. how a bikkhu's name is chosen? Who choses it? The bikkhu himself? The abbot of the monstery? And the name is arbitrarious? Or it has any context?

It is just a useless curiosity.. =)

Thanks.
