Offering Food and Supplies

As alms mendicants practising the Buddha’s ancient monastic way, we depend entirely on the kindness and generosity of the lay community for our daily food and all our other requisites. We are blessed with kind offerings of cooked food, groceries and supplies from near and far, including gifts of food brought to the Hermitage or care packages sent through a local grocer or by post.

During the winter months – through to March 31 – the resident community is dedicated to silent retreat time.

May you be nourished by the food of kindness for the well-being of body and heart.

We are grateful for donations of any of these currently needed items on the list below. (Feb 14, 2019)
