How to use "Monkish" in context?

There is a broad spectrum of monkeying around the world, from veiled nuns living in secluded communities to confident monks who freely roam their monastery grounds. The term can describe anyone who practices monkhood, whether they are living in a monastery, nunnery, or some other congregation of locked-up religious sisters. While some monikers, such as "sramana" or "sangha," are rooted in lineage and culture, monk simply refers to someone consecrated to the seven-fold path of Buddhism, or any religious practice or tradition.
