Kathina 2022: Appreciation & Pictures

The Vihara and the sponsor family–Anoop Poddar & Thanuja Abeysekera–wholeheartedly appreciate those who made this year’s Kathina ceremony a fabulous event.  It is a unified effort by the Vihara members and friends for many days that made the ceremony so meaningful and elegant.  

Please see the pictures and videos in this link. (We will upload more pictures and videos during the next few days.)
