Teaching in Buddhist monastery projects looks forward to the exchange between members of a spiritual community, and overseas volunteers with one thing in common: the eagerness to learn. The overseas volunteers learn about Buddhist culture, Buddhist ways of life, and Buddhist Dharma while the Buddhist monks and nuns learn about the world through the English language.
