You cannot experience meditation

, Oct 2019
The monk of meditation was sick when I visited, so another monk took me to have vegi-lunch with nuns and let me watch a VTR of guide of meditation. I have neither discussed with meditation teacher nor practiced meditation. I payed more than $100, but the local guide and meditation center seemed to accept much less fee or donation than I payed. It is rare experience but not worthy of the price.

The Monastery was a bit of a let down as the monks were all off site. The guide was great and made up for it with taking me around to other sites not on the itinerary as well as for lunch. I would recommend the guide but not the description of the tour.
