Annual Kathina 2017 Ti Ratana Lumbini Garden Celebration 15 Oct 2017 ( Sunday 0900- 1300hrs )



Dear All Bro and Sisters,
Annual Kathina 2017 Ti Ratana Lumbini Garden Celebration 15 Oct 2017 ( Sunday 0900- 1300hrs )
Greetings and Happy Weekend !
We are pleased to announce that we will be celebrating the above event as part of our effort to reinforce our practices  and spirituality from the teaching of the Buddha and capture the essence of  true meaning of Kathina by :
  1. Deepening   our faith in the Triple Gem and  by putting the Dhamma teaching into DAILY actual practice.
  2. Renewing our commitment to support and our gratitude to the Sangha as bearers that had brought till today  the Buddha’s teaching from  2500 years ago.
  3. Making selfless effort to contribute financially and/or in kind to building,  maintenance and improvement of new and old communal facilities /activities for the development and betterment of the many as avenue to spread the Dharma teaching and practices so that there will be more peace and happiness for everyone.
  4. Dedicating our wholesome deeds and development so that we can attain Nibbana soon and be in a better position to help others .
This fundamental meaning of Kathina is very important so that we will not be lost in this current  chaotic world.
We hope you can take this opportunity to reinforce the above 4 foundations in your practices.

Roots of all Sufferings:
All of you are important in spreading the teaching of  Dharma so that all will learn on how to eliminate concept of ‘ self or I ’  which is the roots of all problems in this world and learn to give without expecting and achieve eternal peace, happiness and Nibbana by freeing oneself 
from all attachments and delusions eg .being petty,  craving, greeds, jealousy, ego, delusions, anger,  not happy , confusions , emotional etc……
In organizing big event like the Kathina ceremony or in our daily life , everyone has to work together. When people get together there are bound to be all sorts of clashes, e.g. personality clashes, methodology clashes, priority clashes and so forth.
 This is a time for you to practise patience, forgiveness, unaccepting each other weaknesses, guiding and  supporting each other , understanding and tolerance.
Loving-kindness is very important because it will help to foster patience, understanding and tolerance. Of equal importance is presence of mind and mindfulness.

Good Deeds with True Meanings
In conjunction with this , we hope with all devotees’ true  understanding  , we all can contribute  either in efforts as volunteers or financially or  both to make the our Kathina Celebration  a successful  and meaningful one by building our spiritual strength over time.
Each effort and actions must  fully understood and should not be selfish driven where we are only thinking of what benefits we are going to get and not thinking of other people.
Fund raised in this event is  for the Ti Ratana Lumbini Garden Building Maintenance Fund and support of Ti Ratana Welfare Society for its welfare activities  where these facilities is for  community activities such as development, learning and caring activities can be done for the benefit of all.
Activities by Ti Ratana include Educational efforts in both academic and Dhamma teaching,  Sunday Dhamma school ,  Meditation programs, Yoga Classes, Blessing services, Chanting Classes, Dhamma Talks and many more.
Programmes and activities during our Kathina Day include  Pujas, Meditation, Blessing of Devotees,  Robes and limited Requisites offering. Details will be advised to you in due course.
Kathina Main Sponsor
For all  information, the main sponsor for this year is Sis Check Lee who had passed away recently in an accident together with her other family members.
