  1. Hello!
    How are you?
    I have a question regarding the children’s program.
    Theres no specifications of child age.
    I have two kids, 4 and 2..
    Is it too young to bring for the program?

    • Great question! I will ask the monastics supporting this program to respond to your question.

    • Hi Tenzin,
      Thank you for your interest in the children’s program. While our program is for children of ages 6-12, we do have a toddlers’ room with toys where you are welcome to use during your day visit at our monastery.
      Hope to see you,
      -Sr. Man Nghiem
