Bhante Life (Soul of Gataum Buddha).

in life •  8 months ago

The Pali word "bhante" is a sex neutral term, unlike "bhikkhu" or "bhikkhuni". It is equivalent to Sanskrit verb 'Vande' or 'Bande' as in the song Vande Mataram. Vande means a reverential action of 'bowing' to someone or something. The Nepali terms for the Buddhist priestly caste, bare and bande, have the same derivation.[3] The Pali term Bhante can also be used as an honorific or a form of address to specific Buddhist monks.
