brahma practice
梵行 (Skt brahma-charyaor brahma-charya; Jpn bonᆳ gyo )

    Pure practice, or Buddhist practices of a pure nature. Brahma practice refers specifically to the practice of observing precepts, and especially to observing the precept of eliminating one's sexual desires. Monks were required to observe the discipline of celibacy and refrain from all sexual relationships and acts. Brahma practice refers to such a way of life, but in a broader sense, it refers to those practices aimed at freeing oneself from all earthly desires.
