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.

Our winter retreat will span the first 3 months of 2023 with the support of a dedicated team from the Ottawa Buddhist Society offering weekly meals and groceries.

We welcome you to join us on April 2, 2023, 1-3 pm, for our first in-person Sunday meditation afternoon since 2019.  Our weekly podcasts will continue through 2023. Please visit the home page if you’d like to sign up.

Thank you for your kind messages of support and the stream of generosity that comes our way. These bring us immeasurable joy and encouragement. If you would like to offer a cooked meal to the Bhikkhuni Sangha, please write to:

You can also send offerings of groceries, medicines or other needed items by post; or by a credit card donation to the food fund for the bhikkhunis at Barnabe’s Independent Grocery Store in Perth  (613-267-6763). A local volunteer will drive needed groceries to Sati Saraniya Hermitage.

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