Kathina Day at Santi Forest Monastery

Hi everyone! 
Kathina is a Buddhist festival which comes at the end of Vassa, the three-month rainy season retreat for Buddhists.
The season during which a monastery may hold a 'Kathina' festival is one month long, beginning after the full moon of the eleventh month in the 
Lunar calendar (usually October).

It is a time of giving, for the laity to express gratitude to monks. Lay Buddhists bring donations to temples, especially new robes for the monks.


SPBS will be celebrating Kathina Day this coming 16 October.
Kathina day is a very special event for everyone in SPBS.
