pabbajjā: Description welcome. Info can be removed after imput.
by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:
➥ pabbajjā: lit. 'the going forth', or more fully stated, 'the going forth from home to the homeless life' of a monk (agārasmā anagāriyaṁ pabbajjā), consists in severing all family and social ties to live the pure life of a monk, in order to realize the goal of final deliverance pointed out by the Enlightened One. Thus, pabbajjā has become the name for admission as a Sāmaṇera, or novice, i.e. as a candidate for the Order of Bhikkhus, or monks.
