End of Buddhist Lent Day at Wat Greensboro

We celebrated the End of Buddhist Lent Day on Sunday, October 20th this year. It was the day that marks the end of the three-month rains retreat.

My dad offered and hung money on the money tree.

It was cold early in the morning and Lee bundled up for the service.

The morning Alms giving was Tuk Badt Tayvo.  It is an old Thai tradition of Alms giving where the Buddhist worshipers would lineup and the monks come by to collect Alms. The line was led by a Buddha statue, then followed by monks.

Foods were brought in by Buddhist worshipers to offer to monks.

An offering to the monks.

The temple bathroom construction is coming along slowly, hope we’ll be able to use it by next year.
