Living at buddhist camp for free/work

Jump to last reply

Hello. I am considering going to India as that has been my travel goal for a long time! Once in India I want to find peace and love inside my self.

Unfortunately, my budget is very low. After I've bought fly tacket I will have around 3000$ left at my bank account. With that money I want to travel in India for about five months, aswell as having some money left when I come home.

Therefore I have decided, not only for economically reason, but also for spiritually reasons to live at a Buddhist camp for about 1-4 months. For doing that, and fulfilling my dream I will need you other travelers help to find information about this.

Are there plenty, or even any buddhist camp that will let me, a white almost 21-year old girl, speaking no Hindi or any other Indian language let me stay at their camp, get free meditation courses as well as food in exchange for work? Or are there maybe somewhere where I can get it all for free and just spend a couple months meditating day in and day out?

Where do I find places like that?
What do they expect from me?
What are the offerings I must do?

And any other relative information!

Thanks by advance
- Sweden
