Aloka Vihara Dana List

Dana List for Aloka Vihara

Pantry and Household Items

We are grateful for the generous responses of those who provide items on our dana list.

Out of concern and care for the resources of our beautiful planet, we ask that whenever possible you do not order dana items for Aloka Vihara online. The packaging usually turns out to be excessive and wasteful, often using plastic or Styrofoam, which can take thousands of years to decay.

We understand that you will not be able to come to the vihara in person. Donating a Gift Card or making a general donation are other practical and supportive ways to make an offering.

List updated: March 26, 2020

  • For the week of Friday, March 27th to Thursday, April 2nd, we are gratefully not in need of any particular dana. We are blessed to have enough at the moment, and it is our hope that others also have enough of what they need.
