Update 8 pm October 10:
A neighbor reported that the monastery buildings were OK as of the afternoon of Oct. 9. The fire is still active, and we don’t know the state of the buildings after that time. It is unsafe to travel on Tomki Road, and there are hard closures approaching the monastery from both directions. We plan to update the website as we hear more information.
8 pm October 9:
You have likely heard about the fires in Northern California. We want to let you know that the Abhayagiri community is safe. We don’t know what will happen with Kathina this Sunday. Please check this website for announcements before visiting Abhayagiri.
