Government donates robes to Myanmar monks in India

THE Myanmar Ministry of Religious Affairs organised a Kathina (robe offering) ceremony at the Bodh Gaya Myanmar Monastery in the town of Gaya in Bihar State, India.
Present at the occasion were 30 abbots led by Agga Maha Saddhamma Jotika Dhaja Bhaddanta Ñaninda, abbot of the monastery, Union Minister for Religious Affairs U Soe Win and Myanmar Ambassador to India U Aung Khin Soe.
The government has organised the robe offering ceremony in India since 2008, donating special robes and offertories.
While in India, U Soe Win visited several Myanmar monasteries to meet with abbots and donate Kathina robes. He also offered a lotus silk robe to an ancient Buddha image at Maha Bawdi Pagoda.
The Union minister also met Myanmar monks who are studying Buddha’s teachings at universities in India.
