Teaching at the buddhist monastery has been a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this for someone with a flexible attitude and an interest in Tibetan Buddhism. One of the best parts is coming away with so many new friends, both monks and teachers.

Be aware that schedules change by the minute and so flexibility is a must. Your classes may change or be cancelled on a moment’s notice and you may only find out when no one shows up. The monks are studious for the most part but be aware that they are boys and sometimes behave as such. If you go in knowing these things and with your eyes wide open you should have a wonderful experience. The food is plentiful and delicious, if lacking in variety a little. You may be in trouble if you don’t like rice. But seriously the calm and quiet of the monastery is so nice, especially after being in Kathmandu for several days.
