Kathina Offering Ceremony
Sunday, April 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for an especially festive sharing of the Dharma with our fourth annual kathina ceremony.
The kathina (pronounced ka-tee-na) is widely celebrated in the Buddhist countries of Southeast Asia. Dating to the Buddha’s time, it’s traditionally an occasion for making offerings to replenish sangha supplies after the long retreat.
The Abbey’s American version includes a procession, gift exchange, Dharma talk, and a vegetarian potluck.
