Visitors to the monastery may enjoy a vegetarian lunch at the Dining Hall on Saturdays and Sundays between noon and 1:00 pm.
The lunch service in the monastery is provided by volunteers who use their weekends to come to cook and serve lunch for everyone. Everything we have at the monastery is made possible by donations from the public. Please cherish the food we serve, and take only the amount that you will actually consume. We suggest a donation of $6 per person to show gratitude.
To be a vegetarian meal sponsor is a great way to create good karmic affinity with people as well as to cultivate merit and blessings for oneself. You will have good karmic affinity with the people who visit the monastery in the future, because the donations you make will be used to buy the food prepared for them when they visit. By the same token, when we have meals at a monastery, we should be thankful and glad that we’re being treated to a nice meal. We’re sure to feel much joy too if we follow suit and pay it forward by treating others to a nice meal.
