Ka-hti-na robe offering ceremony, November 6, 2016

As you know that the Buddha allows only members of the Sangha who have stayed at one particular place during the whole three months of Buddhist lent to receive donation of robes. Celebration of Ka-hti-na robe offering ceremony can be observed only once at one particular monastery within one month of period from full-moon day of Tha-din-gyut to full-moon day of Da-zaung-mone.

At the same time, we, laymen will get special opportunities by donating alms, robes and other useful items for the Sangha for wholesome merit. There will be two trees on which some paper money bills and toiletries for the Sangha will be hung up. All of you and your loved ones are welcome to participate in hanging them up on the trees happily.

Our main donor for the celebration is Dr. Tun Zan Maung, Dr. Khin Khin Oo and Family.
