Offering Service Saturday
November 5, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT
Join us for Offering Service Saturday!
One Saturday per Month
9am – 4 pm
Last one for 2022!
One Saturday per month volunteers come together to offer service to Sravasti Abbey. Service could include garden work, help in the forest, cleaning, or cooking — all skills and all levels of ability are welcomed. We also enjoy each other’s company over a vegetarian potluck lunch (no meat, no onions, no garlic).
No matter the weather, volunteers are welcome to help roll mantra to fill the Buddha Hall statues. Each new statue will be filled with hundreds of rolled papers printed with mantra, instances of a Buddha’s enlightened speech. We need A LOT of the them. It’s a beautiful practice, easy to learn, and makes lots of merit.
Please come. These days are lots of fun!
