      ‘Kathina’ is a term rooted in ancient Pali language, having its literal meaning of embroidery frame. However, a presentation of ‘Kathina’ refers to the annual ceremonial offering of saffron robes to the Buddhist monks after the rains retreat of 3 months.

Lay supporters are eligible to present Kathina robes to the Buddhist monastic community that comprises a minimum of five members who each have strictly observed Buddhist Lent as a way to increase their Dhamma knowledge; who have cultivated virtues and furthered their meditation practice.

This year, at  The Johannesburg Meditation Centre (JMC), the date for Kathina falls on  Sunday 10th November 2556 B.E. (2013 A.D.)  at its premise in Halfway House.  For Buddhists and non-Buddhist alike, it is a great opportunity to observe the 2,600-year-old noble tradition of the saffron robe parade and presentation.


At The Cape Town Meditation Centre (CMC), the date of the ceremony falls on on Sunday 17th November 2556 at the Portuguese club, Donegal Street Rugby, Cape Town.
