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.

The vihara is closed to visitors at this time of the pandemic.

For those who wish to offer food dana, a Gift Card from Holiday Market is the best alternative at this time.

Also, it is possible to leave fresh & packaged foods at the vihara doorstep.
Cooked foods pose too much of a risk to everyone’s health & well being at this time.

We are also happy to arrange ‘Store Pick Up’ for non-food items, please get in touch with <>.
