This Thursday head to your local temple – it is the ‘End of Vassa’ day – also known as ‘Pavarana Day’, which means forgiveness. Not universal forgiveness, though that’s pretty good too, but forgiveness from those you have lived with over the last 3 months. It is the end of the 3 month period when monastics stay in one place every night and undertake special trainings. 

Friday is ‘Tak Baat Tewo’ which is a special almsround day. You can offer alms to monks on the streets in the morning, or in the temple. This is a bigger day for public engagement than the previous day.
