Offerings given by the laity to Amaravati (dana)

Many lay supporters ask what the monastery’s specific needs are, so they can offer requisites to the Amaravati community. The list below indicates the items needed by the community and is updated regularly . Should you wish to check on what items are most needed at any particular time, you can also contact Amaravati by email, using the form on the contact page. 

Please note that in an effort to support environmental concerns we would like to ask monastery supporters not to bring bottled water.

Thank you for your kind support.
