Offering Dana


Offering food to the monastic community provides an opportunity to visit and participate in the lifestyle of the monastery.  Cooking facilities are available in the monastery kitchen, but some people prefer to cook a dish at home and bring it with them.  If you are interested in offering a meal, please contact the monastery.

Friends of Cittaviveka often enquire about what is needed. Please find below a list of what would help, along with things you might like to know. Anumodana.
