This chapter focuses on the phenomenon of transnational monastic education and the experiences of Dai-lue monastics in traveling outside of Sipsongpannā for an education. While monks and nuns have long traveled to attend schools, there has been little scholarly reflection on this travel. By looking at the experience of the Dai-lue monastics in Chinese Mahayana Buddhist Institutes and Thai Dhamma schools, I show how Buddhism, Theravada and citizenship enable this travel. While these create a notion of a Buddhist ethnoscape, this is a weak connection that is undercut by frictions created by class and nationalism.
