I had an amazing experience teaching. The students and I understood each other very well. The monks really appreciate the classes and they do their best to learn. This volunteering work from IVHQ allowed me to experience a reality that was unknown to me. It was wonderful to interact with the lifestyle of young monks in a monastery.
