Due to the still uncertain situation, we continue to keep our limited opening times: at lunchtime for people who would like to offer a donation, and in the evening for 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.
We regret to inform that due to Covid-19, the kathina celebration planned for October 25th in Hinterkappelen has been cancelled. Instead, a smaller event will take place in the monastery, for which only the kathina sponsors and a few helpers will be present. Please do not come if you have not received a written invitation from us. Out of consideration for the health of everyone involved, visitors will not be allowed into the monastery without a written invitation. We hope instead to have a live stream of the ceremony on the internet for those who will not be able to attend. If it works out, we will publish a link here through which you will be able to access the live stream.
If you are not one of the invited guests but would like to visit the monastery during the kathina season, we suggest that you call our office and make a booking for one of the days before the official kathina celebration.
