Ordination on spot

Post by confusedlayman » Sat Feb 15, 2020 4:56 pm

Hey friends

I m getting weary of life. I know 5 aggregates are suffering and want to rid of it for good. Even when living my feeling and emotions are attached to it and I want to severe it like sissicor cutting a thread, when my madness reach top.. I’ll just walk into monestry and ask for on spot ordination. Is it possible?
non-agitation is highest peace
living unaffected by other cause and condition to suffering is true bliss
not associating with stupid people is immediate peace

It's very unlikely.
BUT if the monks are nice they might let you stay as a layperson.
Then after some time they might start to take you seriously and possibly ordain you.

I got the feeling you've never stayed at a monastery? It's not like you think. You should arrange to visit and stay for some time at a monastery. It will educate you a lot.

At least 2 month as lay person I think, but try to live several mounth with 8 precepts as lay, see how it is first _/\_
Ajahn Nanadassano (before ordaining) : Venerable Ajahn, what is the bigest error that buddhist do in their practice?
Ajahn Jayasaro : They stop practicing ...
