Taking a quick rest from studying, so I'm here blogging for a little while.
Quoted from Wikipedia;
Kathina is a Buddhist festival which comes at the end of Vassa, the three-month rainy season retreat for Theravada 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.
This year's Kathina's main sponsor at Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple, my usual temple, were my parents. It was pretty much like the past years, just that this year we had some extra 'duties' as we're the main sponsors. The Kathina Day itself was 31st of last month. I was there to help take photos.
