- Hi Jon,
> J: I think that's pretty much how the discussion went. Not sure if I used the word 'survival', but if I did I think I would now prefer to say 'means of subsistence'.p: Yes, I think "survival" was my rendering of what you had said, which was probably "means of subsistence".
> J: Just to supplement a little, I remember it being explained that for a monk, his livelihood is the going on his alms round.p: Yes, that makes sense.
