"Good Karma is a Synonym for happiness"

  The Buddha, Itivuttaka #22


The monastery would not survive without the ongoing volunteer support for various

tasks and professional services: gardening, transportation, publishing, recording

teachings, administration, IT services, bookkeeping, landscaping, and construction -

to list some examples. If you would like to volunteer your support please contact the Volunteer Coordinator:




As there are no permanent lay residents, occasionally a particularly large work load will develop and Dhammagiri will host a 'Working Bee'. These days provide the greater lay community an opportunity to come out and support the monastery, with a central theme

as well as many smaller projects during a full day work session. 

Please feel welcome to come for all or part of the day and join us for the meal offering. These days are announced on the website and to the existing membership by email.
