Thanks to everyone who have gifted us with groceries by mail – Anumodana!
We wish to express our deep gratitude to everyone who has mailed us dānā grocery items over the past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Your generosity is deeply appreciated. We have now returned to our weekly grocery shopping in town so the need for groceries by mail isn’t required at this time.
If you would still like to provide Birken any of the items listed below during our continued closure, you may mail them to us at the following address:
Birken Forest Buddhist Monastery
7000 Smith Lake Forest Srv Rd.
Knutsford, BC V0E 2A0
Anumodana! We rejoice in your generosity and great merit.
Once we reopen, please return to the following protocol concerning dānā items:
Upon arrival to Birken, dānā items may be given to a Kitchen Steward, or brought to the main kitchen area. Please do not enter or leave items in the basement cold room storage area without a Resident Steward present.
