Vas Veseema and Katina are significant annual traditions in Buddhism. Vas Veseema refers to the three-month monastic retreat observed by Buddhist monks during the rainy season. This retreat, held from the full moon day of July to October, allows monastic practitioners to deepen their spiritual practice, engage in teachings, and foster harmony within the monastic community.
Devotees of Sri Lankaramaya form a Katina group every year, taking the responsibility of all the poojas and pinkam during this period. This heartfelt gesture of devotion and selfless service further embodies the spirit of unity and giving within the Buddhist community
