No. Wear what is comfortable for you, however, out of respect for the monastery, we kindly ask that you dress in a modest fashion. Some people like to wear a white shirt, but that’s optional and many people don’t.

No. All of our events and activities are completely free. If you wish you can donate because we do all these things by public funds.

Absolutely. We also have stools and cushions. Feel free to bring your own if you like.

We are a family friendly place. While there are some activities specifically for young people, parents can decide what other events are suitable for their children.

Sinhala is one of the languages spoken in Sri Lanka. A few of our programs are conducted in Sinhala. These are clearly marked.

Pali is the ancient language that our scriptures were originally written in. We usually do chanting in Pali and English for the English programs so people can understand what is being chanted. You can download our devotional chanting service on the Resources page.

We recommend that you contact us before coming by to make sure someone is here to greet you. But if you are in the neighbourhood, feel free to stop in.

Absolutely. That’s why we are here. Anyone interested in learning is welcome. No need to join. No need to register.

All of the activities posted on our website are conducted in English.

If you have a question that is not answered here, please don’t hesitate to send us an email, or use our contact page.
