Luis, yes, there are some wats (temples) in Thailand that allow temporary ordination. It is a tradition that many young men ordain temporarily, in order to demonstrate respect and gratitude to their parents, as well as to demonstrate to the outside world ( or to future marriage partners) that they experienced and have embraced the benefits of temple life and practice. I also met in Thailand a married middle aged guy that ordained temporarily, had retired and left his family behind in Singapore for a while, with the idea to be in robes as a samanera for a while.
After I disrobed as a temp. samanera in Fang, Chiang Mai, Thailand, I came back to my wat and did a formal anagarika ordination. I kept the 8 precepts strictly and shaved my head. But, I was also in the lay world, worked in an office and tried to balance lay life with the 8 precept life. For me, it worked well, and was a terrific path of practice for 3 years. I kind of stopped accepting myself as an anagarika when I decided to listen to music again, and to very occasionally eat after midday, as I found it so difficult with my work to eat before midday. Again, my attitude was that if I couldn’t keep the 8 precepts strictly, then I would abandon the role of an anagarika.
Still, I live as close to the eight precepts as I can. I just bought a small cabin in the Wisconsin forest with a kuti-sized cabin, and will live there ( I am either losing my mind, am a future unabomber, or I have a really good idea…time will tell which is true ). I have the thought to reordain one day, and so I feel it’s far better to stay on this more strict semi-lay path, so as to keep as much of the renunciate sensibility as possible. This is kind of the “middle path” that I’ve carved out for myself. On reflection, I didn’t mean to talk about myself so much, but maybe by way of example I helped with your question.
