India: Monks can train for the future in this sport
In India, there is no shortage of monks.
A large number of the country’s monks and nuns train for various professions.
There are a few schools of meditation and there are even Buddhist temples in many parts of the state.
But there is a big difference between the monks of India and the monks in other countries, such as the United States and the UK.
In the US, monks are expected to be well educated, have the stamina to handle a lot of physical activity, and have the strength to do everything from meditation to physical therapy.
India, however, has one thing in common: monks are poor.
A study from India’s National Center for Health Statistics found that, at a cost of Rs2.50 per day for every person living in the country, there are nearly 6.5 million poor people in India.
These people need to have a strong and healthy body to be able to lead a healthy life, said Pratima Kumar, a senior researcher with the National Center.
They also need good nutrition and adequate rest.
Many of them also need to be educated and trained to be skilled in certain professions, said Kumar.
In India, people like to say that if they can teach you a skill you can learn from, you can teach them a skill.
For many people, meditation is a hobby.
They train themselves to perform various activities, such at the temple, in the fields, or in their houses.
In many parts, meditation has become a way to earn a living.
For example, in India, a monk can earn a few hundred rupees ($1.90) per hour by practicing at his or her temple or a monastery.
The monks in India are also considered the most talented teachers in the world.
In the United Kingdom, monks, like their American counterparts, are often considered to be the best teachers in their field.
In the United Arab Emirates, for example, many people are inspired by the way the monks perform their religious rituals, which have become a tradition for many Emiratis.
In that country, monks perform the traditional Islamic ceremonies like the rosary, the washing of feet, and the fasting for the month of Ramadan.
But for many in India and around the world, the focus on the monk and his training is a little more esoteric.
“The monastic system has not been well understood in the West,” said Kumar, who is the director of the Centre for Education, Education & Research at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
“It is still very new and there is still a lot to be done.”
A few weeks ago, we were talking about the idea of a monk becoming a doctor.
There is a lot more that you can do, Kumar said.
What do you think about monks training to become doctors?
