this bright world is yours to discover

Ven. Dhammadipa (Rev. Konin) is supported by the generosity of donors to the Saranaloka Foundation, which is financially responsible for all of the nuns at the monastery where she resides. Your donations support our basic needs for food, shelter, clothing, and medicine, all provided through the Foundation.

Donations to the Saranaloka Foundation can be made online here:

If you would like to designate a donation specifically for Ven. Dhammadipa, please include the note “pavarana for Ven Dhammadipa” with your donation. Pavarana means “invitation” and it refers to funds whose use is designated only by the recipient.

Anumodana! I celebrate the good you are doing in the world!
