Bhupendra Ghimire

Teach English to Buddhist Monks program has been designed for volunteers, especially those interested in Buddhists' Culture. VIN can provide longer and shorter periods upon request of the volunteers. Volunteers will teach English to the monks, both young and adults, for around two to three hours per day. In turn, the monks will share their knowledge and culture they have gained with the volunteers. Daily meditation practice, as well as fieldtrips to Hindu and Buddhist holy sites, will be included.

Before volunteers leave for the site, they will be given intensive language classes and teacher training everyday. The volunteers can choose between Nepali and the language of the monastery-Sherpa, Lama, etc. The monks are able to speak both languages; it is therefore really a matter of the volunteer's preference. However, most overseas people find Nepali easier to learn. During their language and cultural classes, the volunteers will be taken to the holy sites around the Kathmandu Valley. After two weeks, they will be placed in the host family near to the monastery.

Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, is an incredibly peaceful area in the south of Nepal and home to both Theravada and Tibetan monasteries. If the volunteers are interested to pilgrimage to Lumbini, the trip can be arranged by the organization. The volunteers can highly be benefited through this program since they can enrich their language and culture and can widen their knowledge horizon. Are you interested to be a part of Buddhists' culture? Then, let's join hands with VIN.
