The Friends of the Vihara volunteers help in various events organized by the Buddhist Maha Vihara, such as assisting in setting up the weekly Dhamma talks, puja sessions, Kathina day, Wesak day, eight precepts and novitiate programmes. The tasks undertaken by the volunteers include setting up the place for the sessions, ensuring the materials required for the ceremony and speakers are in order, ensuring that devotees and sangha members are able to participate in comfort.
