Dining hall, located on the first floor of Cheng Yi Pavilion, is not only the place for meals but also to practice cultivation. Daily life including drinking and eating could be the field of practice. ABLS provides Chinese buffet to the public after ceremonies to prolong Dharma practice into the daily routine. Monastic teachers would remind the public of awareness in Dining hall.
The kitchen, right next to Dining hall, is not only a place to prepare food but also the room for cooking class. ABLS offers various vegetarian cooking courses here.
