In Theravada Buddhism, an Anagarika (Pali: anāgārika/ā; lit., "homeless one") is a person who

has given up all of worldly possessions and responsibilities to commit full-time to Buddhist

practice.

The Dhamma, the truth taught by the Buddha, is uncovered gradually through sustained

practice. This is access to Insight. The Buddha made clear many times that Awakening does not

occur like a bolt out of the blue to the untrained and unprepared mind. Rather, it culminates a

long journey of many stages. At each stage of this "gradual training", the practitioner discovers a

new and important dimension of the law of cause-and-effect — kamma, the cornerstone of Right

View. It is thus a very useful organizing framework with which to view the entirety of the

Buddha's teachings.
