Katina Ceremony - Oct. 22, 2022

Dear Friends,


The Katina ceremony of Georgia Buddhist Vihara 2022 will be held on October 22nd (see the program here). We would like to extend a warm invitation to all of you to join us and participate in various meritorious deeds.  We have created the following signup sheets. We truly appreciate your generous support thus far in various ways during this vassana season (rains retreat), and we are grateful if you could support us further to make this meritorious event a success. Following are the ways we seek your support, and we hope you would consider volunteering via the following signups.

1. HSA Account

The good health and well-being of resident Bhantes are one of our top priorities, and we plan to provide to continue the ‘GBV Health Savings Account’, which was initiated a few years ago. This would also be an excellent opportunity for us to express our gratitude and appreciation in a special way for the great services the Bhantes are providing for the spiritual and religious needs of the greater GBV community. We would like to seek your generous contributions to maintain this account. Please support us by signing on https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4aa9aa22a1ff2-sign8
