Arya Sangha Training program
LBDFI has now initiated a nine year training program for Indian monks. Candidate monks will be sponsored to spend three years in training centers in Thailand (Vinaya training), Sri Lanka (Sutta Training) and Myanmar (Abhidamma and Meditation training). Each year five monks will be enrolled into this program, and be sponsored to fly to the respective countries, spending nine months in training and three months returning to India to their home viharas. It is hoped over the course of twenty five years 100 monks can be trained in this fashion.
