This Meditation clothing is for lay practitioners as well as ordained. It does not require ordination for you to purchase or wear it. Most meditation centers have this clothing for retreatants who are non-ordained.
The Tibetan Buddhist, lower half-garment or "skirt" is called shamtab which is worn by men and women for meditation retreats, practice periods or during drubchens. Usually, chuba means 'coat' and refers to a heavy, outer garment similar to our use of a heavy winter coat(with, or without the sleeves). Sometimes "half chuba" means the meditation skirt as well.
While the monks and nuns meditation shawl is called a "zen" but usually spelled zhen, so as not to be confused with the Japanese Buddhist Zen word.
Note that for XXL, please add 20%. Custom sizes bigger than XXL on Meditation Skirt, Shamtab or "Half Chubas" only, please add 30%.
