Description

This insightful program is certain to be an amazing life experience for any international volunteer who wants to become fully immersed with the amazing people and culture in Buddhist monasteries or nunneries. Participants on this worthy initiative are given the wonderful opportunity to stay in a monastery or nunnery and spend their time teaching English to Nepali and Tibetan monks or nuns based in or around the magical city of Kathmandu. Nepal is a hugely spiritual and peaceful place to visit and a place of sanctuary for Tibetan monks and nuns who fled to Nepal when Tibet was invaded by China in 1959. While these Tibetans are now free to practice their religion and express their culture and heritage, they remain an underprivileged and marginalized group within society. Volunteers on this program become a part of everyday life while living in a monastery or nunnery; staying among the residents, taking part in rituals and gaining a rare and unforgettable insight into spiritual life. It promises to be an experience never to be forgotten.
