​​​​Mahapajapati Monastery

​​​​​​​living the buddha's ancient teachings in modern times

You are warmly welcomed to join the residents for evening chanting and meditation any day at 6:00 p.m. Just contact us at least a day ahead to make sure we'll be here and to let us know you're coming.

You're also welcome to meditate on your own in our shrine room or to read the books in our library any day from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please contact us at least a day ahead to confirm. If you'd like to join us for the main meal of the day, shared in silence at 11:00 a.m., we'd be happy to have you, and you can bring a dish to share.

You may also join us for a full-day visit at the monastery. You may take part in the day's meal with us, and there are many opportunities to help out with cooking, yard work, and other projects. You can also spend time going for walks, reading in our library, and meditating in our shrine room. Our day ends after evening chanting and meditation. Please call or email to arrange a day visit prior to coming.

We look forward to seeing you!
