Dana Offerings

Other ways to contribute are by offering ‘Dana’, Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart (more information here).

In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.

Meal dana: at the vihara, your home or a restaurant

To find out when Dana offerings are available please refer to our calendar. Please be mindful that monastics take their last meal around noon so kindly keep this in mind when offering Dana to them.

Also please be aware that monastics are forbidden from touching money, if you wish to contribute please make use of the bowls provided or by electronic forms but be mindful not to hand money to a monastic as it is against their vows to touch money (but food offerings are most welcome). White robed nuns (anagārikās) and lay-friends are able to receive money on behalf of the Samaneris and Bhikkhunis.

Offering other requisites

A list of requisites for the nuns is available on the vihara website here.
You may deliver them in person or order for deliver online to 79 Davis Avenue, Christies Beach, SA 5165
