  • Beschreibung


    The nunnery is a branch of an institute that functions as an educational center as well as a center to preserve and promote Buddhism under the traditional Drikung Kagyu Lineage.

    At present the Nunnery is divide into preparatory classes, Retreat College and Monastery sections. Some of the other nuns as well as some of the new ones who do not wish to join the college get the chance to receive appropriate education in the monastery section.

    The Institute encourages the nuns to be confident, responsible and to gain knowledge and wisdom to become leaders of their own nunnery. Workshops on discussions, public speaking, leadership and a good command of English are being introduced to allow the nuns to step out into the world. The Institute hopes that in time, the nuns will be independent enough to help their community by becoming good administrators, teachers, translators, traditional physicians, health workers and by establishing schools, health centers and homes for the old and needy.

  • Arbeit


    The volunteer position (only for females) centers around teaching basic levels of English to Buddhist nuns for a maximum of 3 hours a day. There are a total of 3 classes a day for 1 hour each and each class will have no more than 10 students. Sunday will be half day (2 classes) and Monday is holiday. Being a native speaker is not necessary as it is more important for the nuns to practice speaking than to hone their grammar skills.

    Comfortable accommodation and good food will be provided in exchange for volunteer services. Travel expenses are to be borne by the volunteers themselves. Buses, taxis, trains and flights are available from New-Delhi to Dehradun on a regular and daily basis.
