Making a donation

The Dhamma is offered freely, with joy, so all can partake.
This is a timeless tradition.

Many people have enquired about how to make a donation however, so we’ve provided some information below. All donations will support the nuns’ daily requisites and the running costs of the hermitage, and are very gratefully received.

The options for making donations are:

  • PayPal

If you have a PayPal account, you can use the Viveka Hermitage gmail address, or click on this direct link:

Alternatively, Paypal’s Xoom service can be used to pay directly into a bank account. The service fees are less than PayPal’s normal fees. Please contact us for the details you will need to use this service.

Here is their website: https://www.xoom.com/


  • Direct Bank Transfer

  • Gift Card

Alternatively, for those in Australia who wish to offer a gift card donation, a Woolworths e-gift card can be utilised for food and other items to support the nuns. Here’s a link for your convenience.
