Questions you may have:

When can I offer dana?

You can request a date on the Sangha Dana page.

Will all programs be held here?

No. We will keep the current venues for our monthly activities. If there is any change we will notify you.

Is this a new Asapuwa

It is a monks residence for the Colombo Dhamma Friends activities. Being so close to Colombo will make it much easier for monks to conduct not only regular programs in the city, but also programs at international schools.
