The Kaṭhina season is traditionally the time when both lay community and monastic sangha cooperate in a grand ceremony meant to mark the end of the yearly retreat period. It is long considered as one of the most auspicious times in the year to make merit ('puñña' = good karma), when the laity present robes and other requisites to the Sangha in a joyful spirit, full of appreciation for the monks resolute striving in their meditation during the rains retreat. For this years Robe Offering Ceremony we have invited monks from Buddha Bodhivana Monastery, Warburton near Melbourne, Bodhisaddha Monastery, Wilton near Sydney and Bodhipala monastery near Adelaide.

For the first time, dedicated supporters from our Indian & Bangladeshi community will be leading the proceedings.

All financial donations on that day will be dedicated to new shower facilities at the monks kutis.

(Of course, one can also donate already now by clicking on picture below and choosing any of the payment options available on the donations page of our website. Please indicate 'Shower Facilites' with your donation, if you like them dedicated to for this purpose)
