Coronavirus measures: First opening of the monastery
After a more than 2-month closing of the monastery, we would like to be especially careful about the opening, because the flow of day visitors is difficult to oversee. We start by introducing limited opening hours – at lunchtime for those who would like to offer dana and in the evening for those who wish to participate in the puja.
At lunch time, offerings can be left on the offering table at the front door. Our kitchen helpers will deal with all the food preparation. At 11:30am, the monks will give the anumodana outside where they will also be available to speak to you before or after the meal. If the weather is too wet, groups not larger than 8 people may be invited to come into the reception room, whereby we suggest that you wear a face mask. In the evening, the monastery is open for participation in the Evening Puja at 7.30pm. Hand sanitizer and contact tracing forms are available at the entrance.
