Sarath, I have seriously considered becoming a monk in last one month. Being single I have no obstacle. But I think if one wants to become a monk one should do so by 30 at latest ( exceptions maybe there ). After that the mind is too rigid to accept an organisational structure. Also one would look quite stupid studying next to kids who are 17.SarathW wrote: Having said all this I have not eliminate the possibility that one day I also will be a monk wearing a robe.
However, one can become as ascetic at any age. I have set my mind on a lower goal - to become a recluse. But becoming a recluse in an urban environment is hard - doorbell alone rings six times in evening phone 6 times add that to faucet leak etc I stated earlier !! I want 48 hours alone !!
