ready to ordain?

Post by Sovatthika » Sat Oct 07, 2017 7:05 pm

what mental factors should one evaluate in order to determine if going forth would be right for them? what material factors (can't have debt, can't have committed the five heinous offenses, etc.)

Mental factors?
Faith in the Triple Gem, being able to endure hardships, renouncing worldly pleasures, etc.
Material/situational factors?
Read Chapter 14 of the Buddhist Monastic Code II
