The Bhikkhu education institute intends to provide education to monks while giving priority to Thripitaka, Atta Katha, Tika, Pali and English languages. Student monks are trained for forest monastery tradition by this institute. In addition to providing academic education, it is expected to provide skills on the relevant practices and duties of monks, going for alms round (pindapatha), practise behavioural code for Bhikkhus, as well as to cultivate samatha (tranquil) and vipassana (insight) meditation. Through this education institute, we aim to endow well-disciplined and educated monks to the world. Every year 50 monks are enrolled and provided education for 3 years. Preliminary construction is expected to begin in 2022.
