PROJECTS NEEDING SUPPORT



Project: Donation for ordination
Location: Aneñja Vihãra, Germany, Bavaria

In Germany, in the nunnery Aneñja Vihãra, two ordinations are imminent. On 19 December 2019, Anagarika Vinita will be ordained as Samaneri and Claudia as Anagarika. To celebrate this auspious occasion with them we would like to donate a present. It has come to our ears that they would be delighted to have this peaceful Buddhastatue, to be seen see in the picture, in the monastery garden. The Sati Foundation would like to give all those who attend the ordination and those who would like to give a present the opportunity to participate in this donation.

Project: help for a new heating system / Buddhist nunnery Aneñja Vihãra
Location: Germany – Bavaria – Upper Allgäu

In Germany, the monastery Aneñja Vihāra offers safe accommodation for bhikkhunis, novices and lay people. It is located in the Upper Allgäu, the southernmost scenic region in Germany surrounded by the Alps, at an altitude of 800 m. Snow-covered winter landscapes are no exception in this region. This January, after weeks of persistent and extreme heavy snow fall the already outdated heating system broke completely down. The monastic community, thanks to two tiled stoves and three borrowed construction site heaters, managed to keep the house warm enough for no further damage to occur. Water and heating pipes often happen to break at minus temperatures! Swift action is needed. A brand new heating system needs to be installed urgently which will total in a substantial amount to be paid by the supporting association of Aneñja Vihāra. Thus, the Sati Foundation would like to assist with raising funds and giving you the opportunity to participate, so that the nuns and practitioners will soon be warm again.

The monastic community and the supporting association are very grateful for any support.
If you would like to contribute you may donate to the SATI STIFTUNG,

Project: Monastic Medical Support


Food, clothing and shelter and medical care are the four requisites that the Buddha allowed as necessities for nuns and monks living the monastic life. Food for preventing the affliction of hunger and to maintain bodily health; clothing for the protection of the body and to appear decent; shelter for safety and security; and medicine and health care which cures illness. Since a couple of years Ayya Phalañāņī Bhikkhuni is residing in the Buddhist nunnery Aneñja Vihara in Bavaria, Germany together with her novices and disciples. We are delighted to have her and we hope that she’ll stay healthy and well. The Sati foundation is pleased to help out with the costs for alternative medicine and medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. All donations are tax-deductible in Germany. We appreciate your support.
