Reflecting on my experience, it seems that volunteer work serving other people in a spiritually oriented community can give a sense of purpose and ealization to one's life.
I've been staying at Dhamma Goenka centers in Europe as a long term server for 1 or 1.5 months at a time, currently looking for information about similar opportunities in India. During my previous visits in this country I've done a few courses near Delhi and Jaipur, but but all the staff were Indian and I would like to find a place where I could integrate into the community and feel part of it.
I have also heard about Auroville and it's on my list of possible places to visit. Any other suggestions about international communities to look for?

That is a noble thought dhyana_online


You could also consider the famous Mother Teresa organization in Kolkata.

Hmm!

Tread carefully!!!

It's great that you want to serve and help!

Beware of false prophets! (Not intended for Mother Teresa. I love her!)

And the whole world needs help not just India.

And I hear Auroville is collapsing from the inside out.

Amritananda Mayi has a lot of international folks serving at her ashram in Amritapuri in Kerala
