LEARN MORE

Teaching at Buddhist Monasteries

Teach English to novice monks in authentic monasteries!

This program is tailored for those who are interested in teaching English and at the same time learning something new themselves!

You will be teaching monks of all ages at a monastery, which will give you the unique opportunity to immerse in their day-to-day lifestyle and learn about Buddhism.

During this program, you will teach different subjects including English, and have one on one English conversation classes with the monks at the monasteries.

You will also get a chance to learn about Buddhism while doing this. You will be teaching novice monks, both adults and
children!

The monasteries we work with are located in different areas in Kathmandu, Pharping, Nala, and the Everest regions. In the Everest regions, we work with Serlo Taksindo, Mendo Pakhe, and Choying monasteries.

During your program, you will be accommodated in the monastery itself
where you will do the program. You will be sharing a room with other participants. The nearest monastery to our Kathmandu Center is Tinchuli (Near the Bauddhinath Stupa) which is about 30 minutes drive from our center in Kathmandu.

Monasteries in Nala and Pharping are about a 2-hour drive from Kathmandu.
In the Everest regions, we work with Serlo Taksindo, Mendo Pakhe, and Choying monasteries.

Reaching these regions can take about 12 hours of jeep drive and an overnight stay in
Phaplu. Then the next day, you will do a hike ofabout30min to 4 hours to reach the Monastery.
