I had that programme just one day after the ice-skating outing.
It was the very 1st Junior Novitiate Programme and was held on 15th-22th November which was a weeks time. It was indeed a new experience for me to join this programme. Well, novitiate actually is the period of training and preparing to be a novice. It is where you live a religious life and we get to experience the living as a monk or nun.
Our daily schedule that we had was morning-puja(chanting and meditition), dhamma talks, Quiz, and lots of free time. At first, I dont really like that programm as it was boring for the past few days. But after that, I enjoyed it especially during the quiz time. And i even had 94/100 marks for our short exam!8)
Over there, I met many new friends and learned more about the buddhism. Iwant to thank my parents for encouraging and making that effort to send me to this novitiate programme. I felt very lucky to have such parents. That's where I get to know more about the dhamma.:D
