I want to become a Buddhist Monk. I have heard storys of former monks that really inspired me, for example the story of Jay Shetty.
I want to rediscover my true self and want to work on myself. My vision is to at one day, make a difference in the live of others in a positive and transforming way.
Society right now is getting side tracked with all kinds of crazy things and one could say we have lost our balance in live. We are in a bubble so to speak
I want to enlarge my horizons and go on a spiritual journey and I want to find this balance in my own live and then ultimately bring it into the world
I am currently 17 but will turn 18 in February. Do you know any monasteries that I can go to? My English is quite good but I am not fluent in any other languages
Also I heard that its not a necessity to eat a plant based diet but I would really like to not eat meat.
Can you also explain to me some of the rules and what a day in the life of a monk looks like?
