Offering Food & Supplies


We follow the Buddha’s ancient monastic practice, living as alms mendicants wholly dependent on the kindness and generosity of our lay community for our daily requisites including food, shelter, clothing, and medicines. Your kind messages of support and the stream of generosity that comes our way bring us immeasurable joy and encouragement. Thank you.

In- Person Meditation and Teaching:
Sunday meditations start April 6th 2024 ongoing. Join us from 1.30 to 3pm
