Buddhist novice nuns.jpg

A śrāmaṇerī (Sanskrit; Pāli: Samaneri) is a novice Buddhist nun, who lives according to the ten precepts. Male novices are called śrāmaṇeras. A woman is to be ordained, according to the traditional vinayas, by both a Monk and a nun, first as a śrāmaṇerī. After a year or at the age of 20, she will be ordained as a full bhikṣuṇī (Pali: Bhikkhuni).

The Theravada Vinaya has 311 rules of discipline for Bhikṣuṇīs.

Within Chinese society, as an example, members of The Sangha are expected to renounce family connections and accept The Sangha as their family.
