1. Male monks cannot touch women or women monks (Buddhist nuns) cannot touch men. If a man or woman was in danger, can they be allowed to perform CPR? If a monk's mother came to the monastery to visit & missed them, can they hug? If a monk's friend was depressed, can they hug them out of comfort?
2. If a monk suffers from illnesses like allergies, asthma, arthritis or anything else, does the monastery provide or assist medication or are they against it?
3. If a group of monks are traveling and have no food or water and but a farm nearby, would they make an exception for food from the farmer despite it possibly being milk, eggs or meat?
4. If someone just recently converted to Buddhism and wanted to become a monk but had already lost their virginity in the past but promises to stay pure for the rest of their life, will they still be accepted by the monastery despite these conditions?
