Wat Nawamin is currently open for limited access to the general public. In addition to live streaming Wat Nawamin’s evening pujas and Dhamma talks, it is possible for those who wish to visit Abhayagiri but the following health and safety guidelines must be followed.
- Visitors may go into the Free Distribution Book Room and the Restrooms but should otherwise not enter any of the buildings. When there are visitors with offerings at meal time, then at 11am, a senior monk will chant a blessing at meal time in the shaded breezeway outside the Dhamma Hall. Visitors are welcome to walk around the cloister area and sit in the shaded breeze ways as long as they wear masks and maintain six foot social distancing.
- No registration is required before visiting except during October 15 to 25. For those dates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Offerings for Wat Nawamin are welcome and should be left on the table outside the kitchen.

whosoever, not freed from defilements,
Without self-control and truthfulness,
Should put on the yellow robe-
He is not worthy of it.
