NEW Hillside Hermitage

With the help of Samanadipa Sangha, Hillside Hermitage has acquired a new land in a very remote part of Slovenia. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to commence with the necessary building of new kutis and basic facilities very soon. That would allow us to move there before long and continue with other work needed on the land.

The entire development will take some time to complete (the place has no water nor any other facilities), and if you’d wish to contribute towards future projects, such as water tanks installation, electricity, toilets and renovating and adapting a couple of small barns that were on the property before, you are very welcome to do so via our donations page. Anumodana!

The goal is to have a similar set up like before in Sri Lanka, with even greater emphasis on seclusion and physical remoteness. That would create simple and suitable life exclusively for the fully ordained monks that have been in robes more than five years.
