Monk

 Sammasati  Karuna  Samaruhi  Bhavana

Monks follow the teachings of Buddhism either as a philosophy or a religion. They focus on studying the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold path. They value each moment as a learning experience and work with various texts to understand the path to enlightenment and to Nirvana. The Nirvana is believed to be a state of state of pure consciousness free from mind-contaminants such as anger, greed and intolerance. Monks seek to move upward to higher levels. The highest one is Boddhisvattva, which is for the ones who has reached enlightenment, but chose not to ascend to Nirvana so they can stay in the realm to help others reach enlightenment.
