Udd.jpg

dhūta (頭陀). Shaken off. To shake off one’s desire for creature comfort in food, clothing, and shelter, one follows these twelve rules as a way of life:

(1) beg for food;
(2) beg for food from one door to the next without discrimination;
(3) eat only one meal a day, at noon;
(4) eat with moderation in quantity;
(5) do not drink liquids after lunch;
(6) wear clothes made of cast-away rags;
(7) keep only three garments;
(8) live in a quiet remote area;
(9) live among graves;
(10) live under a tree;
(11) sit on open ground under the open sky;
(12) sit, without reclining.
