Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a stay, providing up-front the information requested in the Visiting and Staying page. Also, please make sure to read our incoming guest policy below which applies to everybody.
All incoming guests, regardless of their vaccination status, must take a lateral flow test before entering the monastery’s buildings, including the guest-house, Kusala House. New guests will be asked to take it upon arrival, under the supervision of a community member, but some regulars might be offered the option to take the test at home - driving directly to the monastery, or stopping only in unpopulated areas - or unsupervised on the parking lot.
We feel these measures represent an adequate level of safety, but please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee total isolation or complete safety from getting COVID-19 and that you are visiting Aruna Ratanagiri at your own risk.
Visiting the monastery for the day is presently only possible to this extent:
Complete access to the guest-house or other parts of the monastery for day visitors - other than the vestibule, and outside of the allocated time for the Dhamma Hall - is still not possible.
