Our Mission

We provide housing and full assistance to resident Buddhist clergy ordained in Theravada Buddhist tradition. Our mission is to deepen understanding of the Buddha's teachings by enabling them to do their work here in Charlotte, NC (USA). The monks' mission is to develop their own practice while also freely sharing their skills with the community.

Providing Meal Dana

What is needed:

We have the opportunity to support ordained Sangha by bringing daily meals (breakfast & lunch) to Ayya. Her other option is to take her begging bowl to seek seek almsfood.

You may take either 1 or both meals.

Mondays are a particularly important day to donate as her meal backups (mother, restaraunt) are unavailable that day.

When to take meals:

Breakfast should be delivered after 6 am and before 8:00 am. If breakfast has not arrived by 8 and there has been no communication stating that you are en route, then Ayya will take the bus to go on alms.

Lunch should be delivered by 10:45 am;

If you are taking both meals it is ok to deliver both at breakfast time;

If you are unable to make it on time for either meal it is important to notify Ayya Sudhamma so that she can find an alternative for that meal.
