Throughout the entire retreat we shall observe eating one meal a day. There will be a daily meal of breakfast-lunch at around 9am. The food is Dana food offered by devotees and is usually ample for all preceptors. In the evening, we will provide the allowable drinks such as coffee, tea or herbal tea.
The below is the list of allowable sustenance after noon and consumption is up to the individual (we don’t necessarily have all of them at any one time therefore the retreatant should endeavour to bring with him those that he wishes to consume):
– cottage cheese
– preserve or fresh (aloe vera, nutmeg, gooseberries, chinese olive, sweet & sour plums, Pegaga, Daun Kaduk, garlic, chilli, pepper & ginger)
– dark chocolates without milk, nuts or raisins
– Soluble vitamin C
– Filtered Fruit (smaller than the size of a man’s fist) juice but not vegetable juice.
– 2 in 1 drinks without milk or creamer
If you have a medical problem which requires a special diet or any other food supplements, please bring the items you need.
