Here is my question:

How does a lay Buddhist respond to awkwardness and how does a monk respond to awkwardness such as dropping something while ordaining or falling on the floor?


I suppose the buddhist way to deal with awkwardness is similar to any emotion: Accept it, don't act on it, and go on with life.

Unless it's awkward in a precept-breaking way. If so, refer to the vinaya.
