for sure we need to use a Name for all the "rupas". So what should a monk name him self, when there is a need for introduction? What is the explanation of a Monk if he is asked who or what he is?
Hi Hanzze,I would introduce myself as Venerable Greg or as Venerable Nanadhaja or when I relocate to Thailand,Phra Greg or Phra Nanadhaja.
If I was in a country where the people were not used to seeing monks in robes walking along the street doing alms rounds and they asked me who or what I was I would explain to them that I am a buddhist monk and I would also explain if they asked,what I was doing.
