A friend of mine who is going to Wat Bukit Perak has let me know that the temple needs donation both for its Kathina celebration as well to build a new sima hall. The Temple is located at Kampung Gajah Puteh, Kedah.
Wat Bukit Perak will be holding its Kathina on Sunday, 30th October 2011 at the temple grounds in Kampung Gajah Puteh, Kedah.
There will be a simple program on 29th October 2011, the eve of Kathina, with the illumination of the temple and candle lighting around the pagoda at 7 pm, followed by chanting by the monks at 8 pm. On Sunday, the Kathina begins at 10:30 am with Puja service and the symbolic offering of rice in alms bowls.
This is followed by the Sanghadana at 11:30 am, when the monks receive the offerings of alms and have lunch. Lunch for devotees will follow at 12:30 pm. The circumambulating of the pagoda with Kathina robes will begin at 1:30pm and the ceremony will end with the presentation of Kathina robes and chanting by devotees and monks.
Can you please circulate this among all the Bodhiheart members and see if anyone is interested in either attending the Kathina ceremony or to give any donations towards the Kathina or for the construction of the Sima Hall?
