Kathina Events at Dharmapala Institute_ 2020

Dear Dhamma Friends,
We warmly invite all our Dhamma friends and devotees to participate at the  Kathina Ceremony events via Dharmapala Institute Dhamma Zoom and share the merits with your family and friends. This year we have planned a week-long afternoon dhamma talk series starting from Sunday November 1st through Saturday November 7th at 6.30 PM. Please find the schedule of the dhamma talks below. The Kathina Ceremony symbolizes the end of the rains retreat or the ‘Vassa’. Kathina celebration marks the time to move on and the festival also acclaims the offerings of the ‘Kathina Robe’, which is given to the monks by the lay people. The Kathina, represents cultivation of generosity, the first of the Ten Paramis otherwise known as the Ten Perfections. It’s a tradition that encourages the act of charity, and permits the display of selflessness. This year B.J. Perera and family, with the participation of the devotees and friends, will bestow the Kathina robe to the Maha Sangha, in a virtual ceremony which will be conducted via Zoom. We invite everyone to participate in this virtual ceremony with the customary.  If you would like to offer any donations for the upkeep and maintenance of the temple, please find the Kathina donation form attached herewith.
