Considering ordination? The office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama strongly advises that you attend a pre-ordination course to learn about the monastic vows and what joining the sangha means. Tushita Meditation Centre (FPMT) in India is offering a class February 3 – March 10, 2010. The website gives a detailed description of the course and states,
“Tushita’s Pre-Ordination Course is designed for those who have already been accepted by the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama for ordination in that same year (please note that there is no certainty if and when His Holiness gives ordination until it really happens – so please come with an open and flexible mind!), or those recently ordained getsuls (srameneras), getsulmas (srameneris), gelongs (bhikkshus) and gelongmas (bhikkshunis) of any tradition.”
