Opportunity to Study at Taiwanese Monastery

From Dr. Yifa:

It is my pleasure to announce the Woodenfish Project’s 9th year of the
Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program (HBMLP). Over the past eight
years, the Woodenfish Project has offered undergraduate and graduate
students the rare opportunity to extend their learning beyond the
classroom, by experiencing monastic life at Fo Guang Shan monastery in Taiwan.

Since 2002, I have watched this program evolve and become a central
element of maturation for all of the participants. Dozens of Woodenfish alumni
have continued on to pursue graduate studies in related fields. It has truly been
a life changing experience for us all. In order to continue the
success of this program, please extend this rare opportunity to your students by
advertising this year’s program at your college or university. Those
with an emphasis in the fields of Buddhism and Chinese culture or language are
strongly encouraged to apply.

This year’s year program will consist of *100 participants* and there
will be rolling admissions process, with a final application deadline of
April 15, 2010. Please direct interested students to our website,
, to find detailed information.

Warm Regards,

Venerable Dr. Yifa (Ph.D. from Yale)
Founder, Woodenfish Project
