We might expect twelve years of school and another three years at university to help young people become selfless, generous, sociable and well-balanced individuals. However, the culture into which young people these days may be initiated by default is altogether less inspiring. Variously called street culture, trash culture, the meculture, the rat race, affluenza or materialism the symptoms start to show themselves when children get up late, are addicted to video games and music, messiness, rudeness to parents, risk taking and promiscuity. Parents or the young people themselves therefore need to seek out opportunities to become literate in community living  to gain a sense  of belonging to something bigger and more positive than themselves. In the Buddhist tradition, such an opportunity generally means group activities specifically organized for young people at the temple. At the Dhammakaya Centre for Buddhist Meditation, Woking’s only Buddhist temple, we organize such an activity once a year in the summer one for ladies  and the other for gentlemen.

The Novice Ordination and Training Scheme described in this brochure is designed to nurture the good habits and potential of young men according to Buddhist methodology to offer principles of wholesome living and a refuge in the Triple Gem. In Thailand, such ordination is considered a way in which young men can repay their debt of gratitude to their parents.
