About

36 year old lay Buddhist disciple about to embark on the journey towards renunciation. I've been a practicing Buddhist for six years and a meditator for 10. I was given the name Jayantha at Bhavana Society when taking on the 8 lifetime precepts and it is the name I am known by there and on Buddhist forums/websites.

I have been accepted to enter the monastery as a resident with intent to renounce(ie become a monk) and I am currently working out a date to start. I cannot say 100% if the monks life is for me or that i'll stay one for life(all is uncertain!), but I have a strong intuition it is, and the only way to find out is to take the plunge and try.
