While monastic training is the focus, lay guests are also welcome to experience community life, offer service, and experience the kindness of others. One Sunday a month, Sravasti Abbey opens their doors for Sharing the Dharma Day, an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha's teachings and share in community fellowship. All are welcome!
