30 novice monks living in poverty stricken areas at Mae Moh, are entering monkhood.
The goal is to help novice monks' basic necessities during their life at the monastery. The monies pay for the costs of food, housing, clothing, study materials, health care and other basic necessities for sustaining their mookhood in Wat Sobmoe SiWikChaiYo.
Estimated 10 sgd living expenses for one monk per day.
Your donation will help a novice monk to pursue his practice, to study Buddhism and to be dedicated to serving others without the distraction of having to pay for food, clothing, educational materials and daily necessities.

Thank you very much for sponsoring the novice monks from Wat Sobmoe faithfully and selflessly for the past 2 years. Today marked a special day for the first batch of novice monks to "graduate" from the fist part of ordination to the next level of study.
The first part of the ordination procedure is called the “Going Forth in Homelessness”. This is where the candidates requested to become a novice and they were instructed about the Triple Gem (the Buddha, the Teaching, and the Community of Monks) and the purpose and benefits of the ordination.
The next training will be to take Refuge in the Triple Gem and the Ten Precepts.
May you and your loved ones be happy, healthy, wealthy and lucky, live long lives and always have the Dhamma around you, in all your lives. May you attain the highest realizations and merits, and receive the highest blessings.
