  • Have been in the monkhood for at least five Phansa (Rains Retreats).
  • Have an adequate foundation in the English language (at least low intermediate).
  • Are willing and able to participate in the SENS training program throughout the entire three-month period, and to use the English and other skills acquired in the program to further propagate Dhamma teachings to a wider audience.
