Offering Dana


Offering food to the monastic community provides an opportunity to visit and participate in the lifestyle of the monastery.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the monastery being closed, cooking facilities are not 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.  Thank you, Anumodana.
