A lot of places in Taiwan wouldn't accept a youth who hasn't graduated from high school, unless they were extremely exceptional.

Please stay in school! :smile:

i would listen to him. he is much more knowledgable and experienced than you are, and if i understood him right, he is a monk himself in chinese or taiwanese tradition and knows great deal about this subject.
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

Actually I think several of the large Taiwanese monasteries do insist on high school.

And many of the monks and nuns have BAs and even graduate degrees. If your level of education is higher, you will have access to a broader variety of opportunities in the monastery. If you don't have a degree, your options will be very limited. Chinese culture really values education. A degree would be less of an issue at a Theravada or Tibetan monastery.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Not that you won't be able to, just that you won't be able to at some monasteries. In other words, you have less options.

Only you can know for sure.... stop acting like a child if you want to do something this extreme.

Know yourself and stop the frak rebellion. Get smart! have you taken in any of these offerings... or are you blinded by your own illusions.

once you know... then, blessings on you!

The voting thing is just crap, more illusion. Find your heart's desire.

Tiger. It is my suggestion you right now, today, begin the study and practice of Buddhism... Start where you are... Forget about where can I practice, where can I be a monk ... Right now if you want to you can practice.....start with exploring the different schools, read books, and most importantly visit teachers in your own country...there are so many.... The motivation to become a monk should be to help others not to avoid something you don't like....
