We are going to celebrate Ka-hti-na robe offering event on October 29, 2017.
Our main donor for the celebration is New World Printing and Family in the memory of their late beloved father, U Maung Tin (Also Known As) Mr. Ko You Chwan.
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 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 seven members of Sangha will be hung up. All of you and your loved ones are welcome to participate in hanging them up on the trees happily.
