What are the thirteen austere practices praised by the Buddhas and their disciples? Here, a monk – based on fewness of wishes, contentment, wearing away defilements, seclusion, non-socializing, increasing energy, the thought “It is beneficial” – takes up the rag-robe-wearer’s practice, triple-robe-wearer’s practice, alms-food-eater’s practice, house-to-house-seeker’s practice, one-sessioner’s practice, bowl-food-eater’s practice, later-food-refuser’s practice, forest-dweller’s practice, tree-root-dweller’s practice, open-air-dweller’s practice, charnel-ground-dweller’s practice, any-dwelling-user’s practice, sitter’s practice. This is called a monk established in the ancient, original tradition of the Noble Ones.
