Maha Kathina Cheevara offering Ceremony

Sunday, November 1, 2015

The "Maha Kathina Cheevara offering Ceremony" will be held at the temple premises on Sunday, November 01st, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. There will be two (2) more monks participating in this great Pinkama in addition to our four (4) resident monks.
As done in previous years, we would like to follow the same custom followed in Sri Lanka by sewing the Kathina Cheevara at the temple. The sewing will start after 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31st and continue till 7:00 p.m. We will pause the sewing to allow final Bojjhanga Pirith Chanting and continue it after that until Kathina Cheevara is completely sewed. We anticipate that Kathina Cheevara sewing will be completed by mid night on Saturday, October 31st. Those who wish to participate in this meritorious act of sewing Kathina Cheevara, please come to the temple on Saturday during the above noted time periods.
