      Dear Dmytro,and biloo_5,

      Thank you very much for the information about bhikkhu.

      The Jainism obviously uses the same word bhikkhu in their tradition.
      They may also use a lot of identical words, such as the four jhaanas
      (dhyaanas), similar in meaning to early Buddhism.

      Regards,

      Thomas Law
