Temple Forest Monastery


Kathina Tent.jpg

The first Kathina offering in the monastery’s history is scheduled to take place on October 8. This will replace the usual annual “Pa Bah”, and is similar in nature, both being “offering ceremonies” where the lay community comes together to support the monastery at the completion of the three-month summer Rains Retreat, serving also as an annual gathering for friends of the monastery.

Luang Por Pasanno, Ajahn Sona, and Ajahn Sudanto – the abbots of Abhayagiri, Birken Forest Monastery, and Pacific Hermitage respectively – will join us for the event, as well as a number of international supporters. A group from Thailand plan to join with our local community to offer robe cloth, requisites, and funds for the monastery in the traditional way, and invite you to join them. It should be a great day, with a Dhamma Talk and opportunities to welcome and meet the visiting abbots, so do please join us for the whole or any part of the day.
