Monasticism (from Greek μοναχός, monachos, derived from μόνος,
monos, "alone") or monkhood is a religious way of life in which
one renounces worldly pursuits to devote oneself fully to spiritual work.
Monastic life plays an important role in many Christian churches,
especially in the Catholic and Orthodox traditions.
Mantra [s] comes from a Sanskrit word
meaning a “sacred message or text, charm, spell, counsel.”
