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.
Monasteries are rare and precious places where we can test and expand the limits of our love.
The Kathina offering ceremony is a joyful way celebration of the end of winter retreat. It’s also an opportunity for friends to help replenish the Abbey’s supplies after the long winter.
One Sunday a month, Sravasti Abbey opens our doors for Sharing the Dharma Day, an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore Buddhism. The day includes mediation, a talk, vegetarian potluck, discussion, and fellowship.
