From Aspiration to Reality
Since purchasing our 17-acre property and house in January 2015, we have been busy making improvements to create a monastery from what was originally a single-family home. We now have seven rooms for nuns and novices, along with three outdoor dwellings, a steward’s room and guest accommodation. It is exciting to be making our vision real: to create a forest monastery for Theravada bhikkhunis to live and train together and for lay people of all genders to stay and take part in the daily monastic life.
Donations received will help support the easeful operations of Aloka Vihara and the continued development of the monastery’s infrastructure, so that the nuns can retain their primary focus on practice. This will include further kutis for the nuns and improvements to energy efficiency.
What We’ve Accomplished So Far
Through the generosity and hard work of many, we’ve already completed various improvements to our 30-year-old house.
