The annual Kathina Season Festival celebrates the end of the Vassa
At the time of the Buddha the monsoon season was a time when monastic stayed in one place and did not travel. During the month following the end of Vassa, monasteries are allowed to hold a Kathina festival where the supporters provide the monks and nuns with things they need for the coming year. This year’s major gifts and this year’s festival are sponsored by Krishanthi and Jagath. They organised a community robe sewing day, where Nilmini helped us all to contribute to the sewing of the robe that will be offerred to Ayya this year.
During the parade we place the major gifts of trays and with flags and umbrellas we parade from the park along the street to the Vihara. Do join us and join in our little parade.
