Monastic Education of the Jogye Order

 

Monastics of the Jogye Order receive a number of educational programs.

These fall into the categories of basic, standard, special or re-education; not all are required.

All ordained members must complete the standard education program, after which they receive their full precepts (250 for men, 348 for women). After 10 years of steady practice, they can take the 3rd Class examination which entitles the successful candidates to be in-charge of a temple. In addition to the basic and standard educational program, the order has a number of special programs, which include deeper philosophy, analysis of the precepts as well as programs to foster such monastic resources as translators and lecturers. There are also programs giving monastics a chance to develop in a variety of fields in cultural as well as artistic subjects.
