The monastery accepts young children as monks with an open-heart. Children as young as 7 years of age are welcome at the monastery. They spend their child-hood and teenage days at the monastery learning the Neydo tradition & continue to do so until they decide that it’s time for them to experience other parts of the world and spread their learnings.
Monks follow a fixed schedule, mostly dedicated to learning the ways of Buddha & the Neydo tradition; yet, the monastery and the monks understand how important is games for the young monks. Games not only help the young monks stay fit, but also helps enhance their physical and mental growth.
After the 12 PM lunch, an hour or so is spared for the purpose, until the day classes resume at 2. It is during this time period, the young monks gather and play to their wish. Their creative and dynamic minds create games of their own likings. At times, even the elder monks take part in their fun play to encourage the young ones to enjoy to their contentment.
The monastery also tries to make the learning process easier and fun-filled for the young ones. Debate and discussion sessions held at 4 PM is specially for the very purpose. The teens take special interest in the sessions as they get to hear the perspectives of their elders on many spiritual and worldly topics. Furthermore, the listeners are encouraged for active participation in the sessions through questionnaires & more.
