Monasticism A bhikkhu (the term in the Pali language) or Bhikshu (in Sanskrit), first ordains as a "Samanera" (novice). Novices often ordain at a young age, but generally no younger than eight. Samaneras live according to the Ten Precepts, but are not responsible for living by the full set of monastic rules. Higher ordination, conferring the status of a full Bhikkhu, is given only to men who are aged 20 or older. Bhikkhunis follow a similar progression, but are required to live as Samaneras for longer periods of time- typically five years.

Monk In Theravada Buddhism, "bhikkhu" is the term for monk. Their disciplinary code is called the "patimokkha", which is part of the larger "Vinaya". They live lives of mendicancy, and go on a morning almsround (Pali: "pindapata") every day. The local people give food for the monks to eat, though the monks are not permitted to positively ask for anything. The monks live in monasteries, and have an important function in traditional Asian society. Young boys can be ordained as samaneras. Both bhikkhus and samaneras eat only in the morning, and are not supposed to lead a luxurious life. Their rules forbid the use of money, although this rule is nowadays not kept by all monks. The monks are part of the "Sangha", the third of the Triple Gem of Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha.

Weliwita Sri Saranankara Thero During this period few like-minded companions and followers began to gather around Weliwita Sri Saranankara Samanera. The earliest and most intimate of them were Sitinamaluwe Dhammajothi, Ilipangamuwe and Kadiragoda, who came from the south of the island. They formed themselves into a small fraternity called Silvat Samagama and its members were called "silvat tenas" (pious ones) distinguishing themselves from other samaneras and ganinnanses. Weliwita Saranankara Samanera’s lifelong ambition was to re-establish upasampada ordination in the island.

Precept In Buddhism, the fundamental code of ethics is known as the Five Precepts ("Pañcaśīla" in Sanskrit, or "Pañcasīla" in Pāli), practiced by laypeople, either for a given period of time or for a lifetime. There are other levels of precepts, varying amongst traditions. In Theravadan tradition there are Eight Precepts, Ten Precepts, and the Patimokkha. Eight Precepts are a more rigorous practice for laypeople. Ten Precepts are the training rules for "samaneras" and "samaneris", novice monks and nuns, respectively. The Patimokkha is the basic Theravada code of monastic discipline, consisting of 227 rules for monks, ("bhikkhus") and 311 rules for nuns ("bhikkhunis").
