The rains retreat this year starts on the 27th of July and ends on October 23rd 2010. If you would like to bring dana during vassa please take a look at our calendar for dates with no dana offers. For the first two weeks (July, 27th to Aug, 10th) we plan an intensive silent meditation and we would very much appreciate any help during this period.
You may choose to bring dana to the monastery yourself or if you are very busy but would still like to contribute you can call local businesses that will take orders and deliver to Santi. Some of these places are: Chinese restaurant 4883 6368 ; Bundanoon Deli 4883 6062; and you can try others who are listed on this website. Santi’s address is 100 coalmines Rd. Bundanoon. Please sign in the form below if you plan on bringing or sending food on a particular day. If you are sending food from a local business please type its name under “Where are you coming from”.
On the last night of the rains retreat we will be hosting the Jhanathon – follow the link for more information.
