I live in Israel, eighteen years old, have read quiet about buddhism and especially zen buddhism. According to what I have read (including a book written by a monk) and seen (videos on that topic) i have decided that I want to live a humble life of a monk on a journey to enlightenment.
The question is how do i make it possible?
P.s. “Thanks in advance”
Japan is a difficult country to try to live in permanently because of the amount of people per square mile of arable land. Few immigrants are accepted. There is nothing wrong with getting a work visa or something and trying it out for a year though. One of my daughter’s friends did that. She taught english at one of the schools in the countryside….she had a bit of a difficult time….one of her experiences was that some kids threw rocks at her because she was so tall and blonde.
When my daughter went to visit her, the main difference she noticed was that Japan was very quiet.
