Meals in Thosamling

Thosamling provides three meals a day. All meals are vegetarian and designed to provide our community with a well-balanced, nutritious and tasty variety of food. Much of our food is fresh from our own garden, grown organically. Meals are available without onion, garlic, milk, eggs or chili for those practitioners with these dietary requirements.

Our kitchen staff is very creative but we cannot provide separate meals for guests with serious or wide-ranging food allergies. We recommend guests with special food needs bring their own food so they can adjust meals for themselves.

Men may not reside at Thosamling but male course students and visitors and are welcome to take meals in our dining hall. For more information contact us at
