The vassa period is coming to an end and we are preparing a lot of events for you. Let me cordially invite you to attend our rich program in the ārāma Karuṇā Sevena.
Venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi is now again available with teaching online, meditation courses and intensive sutta study. Bhikkhunī is also editing Dhamma books and getting it ready to be printed.
Starting in October 2020, you can come to the ārāma Karunā Sevena in Prostějov for an individual meditation self-retreat. Please, due to the capacity of the accommodation, send us an email in advance, thank you for your understanding. It is advisable that you read the rules, understand them, and follow them. If you have any questions, write to us, we will be happy to help you.
The sad news is, that we have unfortunately lost a lot of supporters (dāyakas) lately. As mendicants who live dependent on the material support of the lay community, Buddhist monastics are among the most vulnerable at times of challenges and crises. This is the case for our venerable. We would like to ask all donors and friends who were not too drastically touched by the current situation resulting from the pandemic to keep financially supporting our venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi through the Association Karuṇā Sevena. We have created a new fundraising website for easier giving. https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-bhikkhuni-visuddhi
