Pavarana Day / Kathina Ceremony (Buddhism) 
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Pavarana is the end of the three-month rainy retreat season for Buddhist monks. It is said that a group of Monks were traveling to spend their retreat with The Buddha but did not make it in time and, according to the rules of Vassa, they had to halt their trip until the season's end. When they finally reached the Buddha, he cheered them up by allowing them to collect cloth to sew into new robes. Today, a Kathina robe ceremony is often held, where Buddhists offer cloth to make robes for monks.
