Before and during the time of the Buddha, monks and nuns would walk slowly from their hermitage to the village to beg for food. Their minds would be fully attentive to each step they took. When they reached the village, they would go from door to door with their begging bowls. They would knock on the doors of the villagers and wait patiently for them to respond. When the door was opened, they would bow in deep respect and place their bowl in easy reach of the villages. They would accept with gratitude any food offerings they would receive.
