Kathina is a traditional Buddhist ceremony that has taken place since the Buddha’s time almost 2600 years ago. It is a ceremony for offering material goods and financial support for the monastics. Throughout the year, the monastics provide an abundance of teachings, guidance, and opportunities to practice Dhamma. All are freely offered to help support spiritual practice and Buddhist teachings.
Everyone and Every Age is Welcome!pg1kathinaenglish17
