Meritorious Power of Kathin can improve one's life in any aspect and we can dedicate merit to our deceased family.
Referring to the sutra, Mindfulness, Buddha's teaching, it is mentioned that making statues, temples and places for Sangha, with bedding and other needs, makes one's life go from happiness to happiness. All the future lives will be always in happiness, going from virtue to virtue, always positive; not just being born human and having ordinary pleasures, not just that-virtue to virtue means having a virtuous life. Even for 1000 ten million eons the virtue collected by having provided these things will never get lost; so you see, it is unbelievable merit.
The Kathin festival is a traditional Buddhist ritual that is celebrated countrywide each year on the presentation of new robes to monks at the temple, as well as monetary donations in support of temple restoration. It features colourful parades and offerings to monks following the end of Lent.
The end of Lent, which occurs in October, is the beginning of a 30-day period of merit-making.
This affords a special opportunity for prayers to Buddha and for the presentation of gifts to monks.
The offering of new robes is considered to be particularly meritorious and important. Other gifts include basic utensils, toiletries, writing materials, and food. Gift-giving is seen as an act of appreciation and gratitude to the monks.
