供養袈裟福無邊,千秋善業享不盡
Janeti Sadisam Pakam Patisandhippavarriyam

結夏安居(Vassavasa):
佛在世時,比丘們過著行腳的生活。為避免僧眾在雨季期間,踐踏草木、傷害蟲蟻,因此製定雨季的三個月,僧團安住於一處,精進修行。經過三個月圓滿的修行後,就是解夏。
During the time of the Buddha, monks and nuns travel on foot. As the number of the Buddha's followers grew, hundreds of monks and nuns traveling on foot during the rainy monsoon season through the sodden countryside could significantly damage crops and injure wildlife. The Buddha thus established the rule that monks and nuns are not to travel during the monsoon period, but would stay in one place and spend the 3-month rainy season Vassavasa in intensive study or meditation practice.

卡帝那儀式 (kaṭhina ceremony):
佛制下,比丘不能買布,不能叫在家人供養布,亦不能去借衣服。因此在家人會在這個盛典中, 供養僧團袈裟及四資具, 讓比丘們於往後的一年披上新袈裟,繼續弘法及修行。【卡帝那】表示具有堅定、堅固的功德的意思。
Under the monks' training rules, monks and nuns are not to buy cloth, request fro cloth, or borrow robes from another monk. In the month following the end of Vassa, the gift of cloth may be given to a community of monastics, the sangha. It is therefore an auspicious time for the laity to offer robes and requisites to monks and nuns to support the Buddhist practice. The word Kathina also symbolize "hardness" - a connotation of stability an durability referencing the firm commitment to the Buddha's teachings and the monastic life.

供養袈裟五大功德:
1) 所住無危厄 ;
2) 飲食得安樂 ;
3) 財富得以免得水火之患,不被昏君奪,不為強盜竊,不為子女敗 ;
4) 穿著得具足 ;
5) 財產得豐富。

一年一度的【卡帝那袈裟供僧大會】將於10月20日(日)舉行。是次活動會在觀塘舉辦。歡迎大眾出席參與,共沾法喜。歡迎善信提早出席隨喜供佛,供僧功德,同增福慧。感恩!

佛陀說:「供養袈裟功德勝於一切例常之功德,為堅固及不動搖。
The Buddha once said "The offering of Kathina robes exceeds that of all other merits, and is stable and unshaken strength."
