    I am also a Budhist. I take this as "Boru Show". According to Buddhas teachings this must happen on a regular basis

    This is a pre-planned program so it is same as a home alms giving.

    Real ‘Pindapatha’ are not 'organized'. This is more of an 'Alms giving'. If you go to a remote 'Aaranya' you'll get to see some monks on ‘Pindapatha’ in the morning. Usually thats the only meal they have from the whole day. It takes incredible discipline to sustain that, but they do.
