Kathina Ceremony

Today was the day for the Kathina Ceremony where the monks receive their new robes. This is my wife standing in line waiting to present a robe to a monk.

There are several monks in attendance. One from Thailand, one from Cambodia and others who are local or from other temples around North America. It is tradition that young men should spend 6 months as a monk.

This Wat has chairs for the worshipers. That is good because the older you get the harder it is to get up off the floor.
