Becoming a monk; money/assets
I'm interested in becoming a monk at some stage in the future, and i'm not sure what you're expected to do with regards to your money and assets before you join a monastery. Is the idea to donate and give away everything you own before you can become a monk, or can you leave money in an account indefinitely?
My concern is that if I give away all my money and assets what happens if I decide to become a lay person again. I would have get a job, etc and get 'caught up in the world' again. Whereas if I didn't give away all my money and assets I would be able to spend much more of my time on practicing dhamma, because I would have enough to support myself.
I'm also thinking perhaps given my circumstances it would be best if I just focus on joining a monastery as an anagarika, and then see how I feel about all this in the future.
Thanks in advance for your responses!
