**Kathina Day** Kathina is one of the two key events that Buddhists celebrate every year. Traditionally, Kathina is the three-month rains-retreat seclusion of Buddhist Sangha concluded with the pavarana ceremony which in turn is followed by Kathina robe offering Festival. This year, Kathina falls on 29 October 2017 (Sunday) and SBM will be organising our own Kathina within our premises to offer robes to the Sangha members. It is a day that we can all come together to celebrate this wonderful ceremony. **The event details are as follows:** **Date: 29 October 2017 (Sunday)** **Time: 0830 – 1300** **Attire: White top and bottom** Do come down and join us if you are free! This is SBM s most important event other than Vesak! We will also need people to help with the setting up for the event on 28 October (Saturday) so do come down and help out in the set up! (Afterwhich we can go catch a movie and have dinner together yay!) **Details for the set-up:** **Date: 28 October 2017** **Time: 1400 – 1700** **Attire: Your usual Saturday sharing attire!**
