On Sunday 26 October, the Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur was a hive of activity as more than 1,000 devotees thronged the vihāra for the annual ‘Kathina’ Robe-offering ceremony. The presenting of ‘Kathina Robe’ is one of the ways for the laity to support and pay tribute to the Sangha (monastic order). It is performed yearly after the conclusion of the “monastic rains retreat” (Vassāvasa). We rejoice over the devotees’ faith and meritorious deeds. Sadhu anumodana.
