Daily life varies from temple to temple but a typical day is as follows: the monks get up early, usually before dawn, and start the day with chanting and meditation. When it gets light they go on their alms rounds, then come back to the temple for the morning meal. Some temples have only one meal a day while others have two. During the day the monks study, meditate, teach, clean or work on the temple and participate in ceremonies. Some temples have classes for monks. In the early evening there's more meditation and chanting.
