Sunday, 10:30 am 3:30 pm. All are warmly welcome. KATHINA is a joyous celebration, re-affirming the mutually supportive relationship of monastic and lay Buddhists, and happens only once a year in each monastery wherever a community of monks have completed the three-month rains retreat residence. Traditionally it centres around the giving of cloth for robes, but in modern times it has also become an opportunity for offering other requisites that meet the needs of the monastery and its resident community.
