Sangha Dana Reservation
📒 A Merit that Surpasses that of the Four Great Oceans
You now have a great opportunity to give dana in the name of the Sangha, which is incalculable and immeasurable. Therefore, the Buddha said that there is no way that gift given to an individual can be more fruitful than giving a gift to the Saṅgha.
To take up this rare opportunity to offer dana to the Maha Sangha at Colombo Dhamma Friends of Mahamevnawa Buddhist monastery Kotte, send an SMS or call to reserve a date for a dana offering. However, if you are unable to come in person, you can sponsor a dana for the Maha Sangha.

🛑For the time being, only “Sponsored” dana is accepted on Poya days. – Duruthu Full Moon Poya Day: January 25, 2024 (Thursday)
⚠️ To give people who bring dana, try to avoid reserving sponsored dana on weekends if there is no any special reason.
🥗 7 days Sangha Dana Requests
It’s a very powerful and rare merit that you could get to do once in life.
Many lay disciples who offered Dana during Buddha’s time attained Nibbana on the seventh day and even the 80 great disciples have done special merit for seven consecutive days with great wishes and were fulfilled.
By continuously giving and developing it as a habit, we will be able to easily see the fruits that dana offerings bear: just as Vishaka and the merchant Anathapindika continuously gave dana and were known by everyone in the Buddha’s Dispensation, you too can gain great results from the offerings.
This chance is given for one devotee every month, to reserve a Seven Day Dana you may contact Monks on Whatsapp / +94 779 700 001 (SMS or Call) or Fill the below form
