Bhikshu is a Sanskrit word; it is the technical designation for a fully ordained Buddhist monk, one who leads a pure and celibate life and who upholds the basic 250 monastic regulations (227 in the Theravada tradition).
Above, a Bhikshu seeks the food of Dharma from all the Buddhas to nourish his Dharma body.

 Soka Gakkai Dictionary of Buddhism
The term bhikshu means one who begs, particularly for alms, and generally one who devotes oneself to Buddhist practice and subsists entirely on alms received from laypersons through the practice of alms-begging.
With the development of the community of monks and the establishment of a system of monastic rules, bhikshu came to refer to only those men who had gained admission into the Buddhist Order by going through an established ordination ceremony.
In the early period of Buddhism, bhikshus lived alone in forests and other quiet locations, devoting themselves to meditation and other practices.

And again during the time of the preaching of this holy and fully enlightened Tathagata Lokesvararaja, O Ananda, there was a Bhikshu, Dharmakara by name, richly endowed with memory, with understanding, prudence, and wisdom,--richly endowed with vigour, and of noble character.
Now, for instance, O Ananda, the Bhikshu Maudgalyayana having obtained miraculous power, might, if he wished, count^41 in one day and night, how many kinds of stars there are in the universal world.
And let there be reckoning made by those Bhikshus, who are like Maudgalyayana, counting for a hundred thousand nayutas of kotis of years, and yet, as to the mass of water left in the great ocean, it would even then have to be considered as not counted.
