Who do you need to prove it too?
You're the only one who needs to know.
And the only thing you need to study to know is your own heart. Is it sincere, or is it not? That's it.
The rest they will teach you there.
My best wishes for you in your efforts,
: Hello everyone,
: I recently called a buddhist monastery close to where I live and requested to stay for a while. It it the Bodhinyana Monastery in western australia. The monk I spoke to gave me permission and I am going in two weeks. At the end of that time I am going to request to be ordained as an anagaraka of that monastery. Does anyone know if there are any tests or initiations you have to do and is there anything special you have to know. I will spend the next 2 weeks meditating and studying, is there anthing i should study to prove i am a therevada buddhist.
: Thankyou, Love Craig
