Hello Bhante Pemaratana. I am in New York and have been going regularly to a Thai Buddhist Temple. I have undergone a major refocus of my life because of Theravada Buddhism and would like to become a samanera or novice monk. The particular place of worship does not offer certificates and therefore, it seems to me that they do not offer this practice any more. Is this type of training possible to undergo at the PBC? Is it even offered? If not, could you recommend a location in the United State that offers this type of traning? I am committed to this.
