Sangha Laity Training Programs
The Sangha and Laity Training Programs are vocational training programs
for current and aspirant members of the Buddhist Sangha and for Buddhist
laymen and laywomen of at least eighteen years of age. The purpose of
the programs is to provide a solid foundation in Buddhist studies and
practice for those whose goal is an occupation in a Buddhist institution
or community setting, in social service areas, or in educational institutions.
These programs of study and training came in response to the growing number
of Buddhist institutions, such as temples, monasteries, convents, schools,
colleges and universities, and health centers, in America and in other
countries that require their staff to be knowledgeable and proficient
in Buddhist doctrine and practice. These programs also fill a need in
the Buddhist world community for Buddhist training centers that provide
education in orthodox teachings and training in traditional monastic systems
