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. We will gratefully receive food prepared outside the monastery.

Friends of Cittaviveka often enquire about what is needed. Please find below a list of what would help, along with things that we currently have enough.  Thank you, Anumodana!
