Up early, we headed back to the monastery for the culmination of Jula Kathina. Passing the 130 metres of cotton that had been made from person to person, the fruits of our labour were finally offered to Venerable Ajahn Jayasaro, Venerable Ajahn Jiew and the other monks in attendance. A spot of litter collection followed by lunch and we headed back to Chiang Mai, tired but satisfied. Our students were a credit to the school with their dedication, excellent behaviour – commented on by many – and spirit of generosity and togetherness. Anumodana!
