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.

We will be hosting our first in-person programs since 2019 beginning with 2 hyrbid events in December. These will include in-person as well as online meditations and Dhamma teachings. We hope that following simple health protocols will help protect your safety and well-being. Please see the home page if you’d like to sign up for our weekly podcasts which will continue to run into 2023 and through the winter.

We have much gratitude for your kind messages of support and the stream of generosity that comes our way. Currently, weekly cooked meal offerings are kindly organized by members of the Ottawa Buddhist Society. If you would like to offer a dana 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 the Independent Grocery Store in Perth  (613-267-6763). Their store Accounts Department will process your donation and one of our community volunteers in Perth will pick up and deliver the 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.
