Third Friday of the Month Evenings, 7pm to 9pm
On the Monastic Evenings one or more Theravadan nuns will be offering traditional Buddhist chanting, silent or guided meditation, and sharing the Dhamma from the heart. This may take the form of a Dhamma reflection, Dhamma dialogue, taking refuge, or questions and answers. The Saranaloka Foundation was established in 2004 to support nuns from Chithurst and Amaravati monasteries in England to come to the United States to teach. With the blessing of the Forest Sangha, the nuns’ community is now setting up a permanent monastery here in the United States. They currently live at the Aloka Vihara in San Francisco. www.saranaloka.org.
