The Diet

Sāmaṇeras reciting before partaking food

The diet at Pa-Auk Tawya is vegetarian, with specially prepared food for the foreigners that contains less oil and spices than the regular food. Since the food is provided daily by that day's donors, there are no facilities for providing special diets. Lay meditators, however, may go to the market and get what they need, with permission from their meditation teacher.
