2 year intensive training, Separate male & female programmes, Intake from age 16+ Anagarika Programme

Many who diligently practice the Dhamma eventually become convinced that Noble Livelihood is indeed the most fruitful path to one’s liberation. Once they have made this choice voluntarily, we offer them the opportunity to embrace the livelihood of a male or female Anagarika. 

The Anagarika programme is an intensive 2 year residential programme during which they practise the Noble Path under the close supervision of a teacher monk. A thorough programme supports the male Anagarikas to assimilate the Dhamma and Vinaya (monastic discipline) as they prepare for ordination. The female Anagarika programme operates out of our sister monastery located a short distance from the main campus
