Sponsor for Atapirikara

You can make an online donation for an Atapirikara to be offered on the day of the Kathina Ceremony.


“KATHINA” signifies the traditional end of the Vassa (Rainy) Season pertaining to the Buddha’s own home ground in Northern India. Kathina is an auspicious event giving devotees the rare opportunity of offering a Kathina Robe to the Sangha who have observed the Rainy Retreat (Vassa) at this Vihara. Atapirikara will cost £30 and Cheewara £20.


Once an order is confirmed, Atapirikara or Cheewara  will be available for pick up at the Katina venue.


When you collect your order, we’ll ask you for:
  • An order confirmation email with donation or receipt number 
  • The name on the order

We appreciate your kindness and generosity to contribute to the programme carried out by Aloka Vihara to promote, foster and propagate Theravadha Buddhism in the United Kingdom
