Pravrajita (Skt. pravrajitaḥ; Tib. རབ་ཏུ་བྱུང་བ་, rab tu byung ba) — literally someone who has 'gone forth', and therefore often translated as a 'renunciant'. The Tibetan term rabjung has become synonymous with being a monk. The definition is 'to go from having a house to being homeless'. The term stands in contrast with the householder (Skt. gṛhin).
