  Bhikkhu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Pāli, a bhikkhu (male) or bhikkhuni (female) is a fully ordained Buddhist monk.
A bhikkhu has taken a vow to enter the Sangha (Buddhist monastic community) and is expected to obey rules of conduct (typically around 253 for a male) as set out in the Vinaya, although there are considerable local variations in the interpretations of these rules.
The minimum age to take bhikkhu vows is 21 years.

 Bhikkhu Patimokkha
Should any bhikkhu, overcome by lust, with altered mind, engage in bodily contact with a woman, or in holding her hand, holding a lock of her hair, or caressing any of her limbs, it entails initial and subsequent meetings of the Community.
That bhikkhu is not an exponent of the Dhamma and he is not an exponent of the Vinaya.
And should that bhikkhu, thus admonished by the bhikkhus, say about the bhikkhus, "The bhikkhus are prejudiced by favoritism, prejudiced by aversion, prejudiced by delusion, prejudiced by fear, in that for this sort of offense they banish some and do not banish others," the bhikkhus are to admonish him thus: "Do not say that, Ven.

 Bhikkhu - Free Encyclopedia of Thelema
A bhikkhu (male) or bhikkhuni (female) is a fully ordained Buddhist monk.
Originating in the Pali language, the word literally translates to "one who begs," but it also has several other meanings, one of which is "one who discerns the fears of the round of rebirths." Despite the "he who begs" definition, bhikkus do not beg.

 Sangha: The Ideal World  Community   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
A person is ordained a Bhikkhu or is admitted to the Sangha of monks in accordance with the rules of the Vinaya.
A Bhikkhu is classed as a Navaka, or a newly ordained one, if he has been admitted to the Order for not more than five years, and he is required to live in "Nissaya," or dependence, on an Acariya or teacher, that is, he is a dependent.
Thus, a novice twelve years of age may be an Arahant while an aged monk seventy years old may be only a worldling, not attaining even Sotapannaship, and a wise layman may achieve Arahantship in a period of an hour while many monks may strive in vain throughout their lives to secure the same.

 Thanissaro Bhikkhu
The author recalls how Ajaan Fuang taught meditation to his students: he would give them just enough instruction to stay on-track, but would rarely "certify" them as having attained this or that level of jhana, thereby motivating them to develop self-reliance and ingenuity in their meditation.
In this article, adapted from a talk given at CIMC in 1996, Thanissaro Bhikkhu suggests that the heart of insight practice as taught by the Buddha consists of the skillful development of both jhanic concentration and mindfulness.
