Monks begin the day at 6 a.m. with services in the shrine room. First, there are offerings to the Buddha, then there is recitation of sutta invoking blessing to the world, and finally there is meditation upon loving kindness, extending good will and harmony to all beings.

At 11.30 a.m. there is an offering of food at the shrine, after which lay devotees offer food to the monks. At 6 p.m., there are devotional services and recitation of suttas, followed by mediation in which everyone present is welcome to participate.

Facilities are available at the vihara for the performance of all rites and ceremonies observed by Theravada Buddhist communities. Lay people also have the privilege of inviting monks to their homes to perform ceremonies.
