Pindapata is the monastic practice of walking through a town or village to collect alms food, as observed by Theravada Buddhist monks, and especially forest monks, who have gone forth from ‘home life’ to ‘homelessness’. Monks at Vimokkharam follow a vow to uphold this practise every day that they intend to eat. Anyone with a generous or faithful heart is welcome to make food offerings into the monks’ bowls.
Those wishing to offer food into the monks’ bowls should be at the Kallista Shops at 9.45am or at the Hermitage site (29 Perrins Creek Road, Kallista) at 10.00am.
