Dear forum members!
i would like go to a buddhist monastery in the near future as a buddhist nun. i know Amaravati Monastery and i think it is a very good monastery. but i know it: they (the monastery) want two times i go to the monastery before i will live in the monastery. If i wanna be a female monk, they (the monastery) want i live two short times in the monastery because they want get to know me. after two times they adjudicate about i am living in the monastery as a female monk or no.
i have got a problem: maybe i can't go two times to the monastery because i have got work in my country and i don't want lost my work! i very need work. i need money.
i don't know informations about other monasteries. i just know informations about Amaravati. i would like know other monasteries who don't want i go to the monastery for two times before i will live in the monastery. i would like the monastery want just one time before i will live in the monastery.
i don't know two times is a buddhist tradition or no???? if two times is a tradition i think all monastery want i go to two times to the monastery before i will living in the monastery..... it would be a big problem.
i would like just one time before i will living in the monastery
thank you very much for the replies!
