The Abbey offers a variety of opportunities for you to learn the Dharma and to get involved.When you visit, you will immediately be incorporated into community life—following the daily schedule, observing monastic community guidelines, and offering service to the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha) and sentient beings. As you contemplate your visit, get in touch with your heart of love and compassion. With an altruistic intention, think that you will come to Sravasti Abbey in order to bring peace and compassion in your own heart and in the hearts of all sentient beings.Generate the aspiration to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
