THOT KATHIN Annual Ceremony 2015
During Lent (roughly the rainy season in Thailand) monks could not travel. The monks stayed overnight in the same temple for three lunar months. The Kathin ceremony originates from the time of Buddha. The original ceremony was for a group of monks traveling to meet Lord Buddha. They were unable to complete their journey before the beginning of the rains retreat (Lent). At the end of Lent they completed their journey. Their clothes had become soaked and dirty on their way to meet Lord Buddha. When Buddha saw their condition he allowed lay people to offer the monks yellow robes. The tradition of presenting robes to monks continues today in the Kathin ceremony.
