When a monk who seeking for the Pangsukula Cloth, he had already been washed , dyed and sewn into a quilt skirt and blanket for a modest retreat following the example of the Buddha had given them . After Buddha had Puttha permission for the monks to get the rich robes from the villagers, the monks had been more convenient and they were also helping the villagers to gain merit from offering Pangsukula Cloth to these priests too.
