You should not think, “O, may joy cause rapture in me.” It’s a natural law that one who has joy will readily become rapturous.
≈ Don’t Think, Madhyama Āgama 43
The purpose of offering dana in the Buddha’s teaching is to bring gladness to a giver’s heart before, while and after giving a gift. Our first wish is that anything offered to Sarana generates great Dhamma joy.
Every single kind intention and gesture is a huge support to us and our effort to sustain the vihara; sending a friendly message, sharing a commitment to growing in Dhamma by taking part in our activities, or lending a hand with the day-to-day tasks of running the monastery. It all helps!
There are several ways you can support Sarana:
It is a deep honour for us to invite people to share in the ancient practice of offering food to monastics. We have a daily meal ceremony at 11.00am and if you’d like to join us please book via our visitors’ page.
Offer via local volunteers
We have a few local supporters who can bring groceries to the monastery on your behalf. If you are interested in making an offering in this way please send us your contact details.
Local fruit & veg supplier
We have an account with a local food shop and you can send credit directly to them. Please give the reference “Sarana” when arranging credit.
