Tilorien Monastery

Donating Food (Dāna)

Buddhist monastics live in material simplicity. Only four requisites were allowed by the Buddha: Robes, almsfood, shelter, and medicine. Of these, only food is something monastics need every day.
To support the Sangha, you can:

  1. Come to the monastery and provide a meal
  2. Offer food on our almsround (Every Thursday from 18th May 2017. Alternating between the markets of Vielsalm and Gouvy)
  3. Send a food parcel (see Dāna-List)
  4. Make a financial contribution towards food expenses. Details are on the right of this page.

Tilorien residents practice compassion for all living beings and therefore follow a vegetarian diet.
