Sharing the Dharma Day

"Thank you for sharing the Dharma. It has made a huge difference in my life, and because of that, maybe I can make a difference in someone else's life."

Sharing the Dharma Day

One Sunday a month, Sravasti Abbey opens our doors for Sharing the Dharma Day, an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha's teachings and share in community fellowship through teachings, meditation, discussion, and vegetarian potluck lunch.*

People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored on Sharing the Dharma Day to enhance their lives.

Dress is casual (although we ask that you not wear shorts or tank tops) and all are welcome. Friendly curiosity and openness to learn are the only pre-requisites. Please join us!

*Please bring a dish to share. The Abbey community doesn't eat meat or egg dishes, onions, garlic, or radishes. Eggs in baked goods are fine.
