Offering Food & Supplies

As alms mendicants, we practise the Buddha’s ancient monastic way, depending entirely on the kindness and generosity of our lay community for our daily requisites including food, shelter, clothing, and medicines.

During the pandemic, we have  continued to run online meditation programs with online Dhamma teachings and reflections using zoom meetings, weekly podcasts, and and writings posted on this website. Live programs will remain on hold for the foreseeable future. We wait with patience and compassion to see how conditions for everyone’s safety evolve under the new protocol of eased restrictions.

Thank you for all your kind wishes of support.  We are receiving weekly cooked meal offerings kindly organized by members of the Ottawa Buddhist Society.  We welcome you to participate in this rota system.  For more information, please write to:

You can also send offerings of groceries, medicines or other needed items by post.

May kindness prevail, medicine cure, and may all live in well-being, safety, and peace.  May you be nourished by faith, generosity, and a heart of universal kindness and compassion.
