Be a monk challenge is a life changing experience indeed. Being grown up in a Christian environment I never thought, that to be a monk it is not just some kind of unachievable idea of renunciation, but rather it is a very practical idea of an unforgettable and beautiful lifestyle. Modern world needs more spiritual people, modern world needs more monks, or people who have experienced this kind of beautiful and sacred lifestyle. Joining the challenge for me means giving a chance to yourself to grow up even more, to progress even more. So take a challenge and give peace and spirituality a chance in yourself and in the world. Many thanks to the team.
