If you see one of the rust- or saffron-robed monastics on their morning walk ~ the almsbowls are a chance for sharing an offering of food sustenance, not for soliciting monetary donations. According to their monastic rule, the bhikkhunis walk silently, without mega- or micro-phones, pamphlets, door to door calls, or any other sort of disruption, invasiveness or proselytizing. Generous or interested persons who wish to offer support or to learn more about meditation or Buddhism, may visit or contact Dhammadharin's Santa Rosa Vihara or Aranya Bodhi Hermitage at their leisure, or go to the "Supporting our Bhikkhuni Sangha" page on this site.
