AnagarikaIn Buddhist context, an anagarika is a white-robed student in the Theravada tradition who, for a few months, awaits being considered for Samaneras ordination.

The student’s time is generally spent helping others with tasks, while adapting to their new life. An anagarika can choose to leave the monastery at any time, without shame.
