This was an amazing experience for me, as someone that had had no contact with meditation ever before. I learned so much in these 3 days, and went through so many different things that are almost impossible to describe. I will never forget the people I met here and the smiles of the monks, which are no doubt the most honest smiles I have ever seen before. I cannot recommend this place enough, as long as you come with the right intentions and with an open mind.
The schedule is pretty intense at "Tam Wua" Monastery. You start your day with a meditation at 5am and you end it around 8pm after the evening chanting & meditation. Everyone's back at their dorms before 9pm, and I was usually asleep before 10pm. All the food served here is vegan, and everyone must wear white at all times. Clean white clothing is provided to you in case you didn't bring your own.
I'll spend the next following days in "Tam Wua" Buddhist Monastery. This monastery opens its doors to anyone willing to learn about Buddhism, offering free food and accommodation. I wasn't planning on doing this, but a guy at my previous hostel shared his amazing experience with me and encouraged me to do it. I decided to give it a go.
