Please come to the Kathina Ceremony of the Saraniya Dhamma Meditation Centre this Sunday the 15th November.
Swinton Masonic Hall
The meaning of Kaṭhina cīvara is associated with a number of Buddhist rules and regulations. The monks observe the rains-retreat for three months. At the end of the rains-retreat, they perform the pavāraṇā (invitation), and after the rains-retreat the Kaṭhina robe offering ceremony takes place annually for one month by performing Vinaya activities. This is why the Kaṭhina ceremony demands more determination, firmness and stability, and the Kathina is special, and the sponsors, receivers, and makers accumulate great merits.
