Food offering for bhikkhunī Visuddhi during vassa

Dear friends,

Bhikkhunī Visuddhi is living in ārama Karuṇā Sevena and is currently on a meditation self-retreat. Because Czech Republic is a non-Buddhist country, and there is no tradition of offering food by lay people to the monastic, we need to be innovative and look for other solutions while maintaining strict vinaya monastic code.

If you also would like to participate and practice generosity towards a monastic, you may cover the food expenses for venerable Visuddhi. Following vegetarian restaurant delivers food in Prostejov (CZ) every day, except Saturdays and Sundays: Kalindi. One meal costs about 4.50 USD per day. If you would like to donate to cover any amount of meals, click on the Paypal button on the right or email us on Bh. Visuddhi will finish vassa at the end of October.

Ever since the time of the Buddha, we can provide the monastics with these following requisites: 
1. monastic robe
2. food
3. medicine - in case of disease
4. shelter

Thank you for your generosity. Much mettā, Ivona Mollberg
