The lives of bhikkhus and bhikkhunis are governed by a set of rules (contained within the vinaya) governing the behaviour of Buddhist monks (Bhikkhus) and nuns (Bhikkhunis). Their lifestyle is shaped to support their spiritual practice: to live a simple and meditative life and attain nirvana.
A person under the age of 20 cannot ordain as a bhikkhu or bhikkhuni but can ordain as a a novice monk in a Buddhist context.
Hereunder are some beautiful analogue images of Buddhist monks' daily life.
