Dana list

Many lay supporters ask what the monastery’s specific needs are, so they can offer requisites to the Amaravati community. The list below indicates the items needed by the community and is updated regularly . Should you wish to check on what items are most needed at any particular time, you can also contact Amaravati by email, using the form on the contact page

Notice: the offerings drop-off area has moved

As of Saturday 9 April, we have reopened the monastery, and you are welcome to partake of the meal and bring your offerings to the sala, which is now open to the public during the day. Please note however that from the 3rd of May onwards, we have relocated the sala and kitchen to the retreat centre area – please see the “Drop-off Dana & Delivery” at the top-left in the map below.

Under this new setting, you can bring offerings to the ‘food drop-off’ area highlighted in purple above; please note that the back gate and the offering table behind the previous kitchen are not available anymore.

Thank you for your kind support.
