Turkang – Suffering and pain
Anichang – Impermanence
Arnata – All is vanity
(Pronouncing in Pali, actual word may different.)
When Archan Tia was 19 years old he just like the rest of the teenagers living their life. One day in the morning he wake up and found his entire body in pain, he was thinking by himself, “what happened to me? I was fine and healthy as bull last night, but now look at me, so weak.” Then suddenly a thought flash in, he recalled the dharma talk that he listen from the temple about Turkang, Anichang and Arnata, those words inspired him, “how true they are, what Buddha said is definitely right.” He then decided to pursue the learning of Buddha, he said goodbye to his mother, and his mother was shocked by his decision and shredded tears. He went to temple to read those Buddhist scriptures and learn meditation, he said there were 24 Buddist scriptures, each one of them is ticker than a brick. He then later officially ordained as monk when he was 21 years old.
So this is a shorter version of why Archan Tia ordained as monk, im still working on the complete version.
Turkang – 痛苦
Anichang – 无常
Arnata – 一切皆空
当阿占爹19岁的时候，他就像在他家乡的其他青年人一样的过生活。有一天的早晨他醒来时，发现全身痛楚无比，他想，发生了什么事？昨天我还身壮如牛，怎么一觉醒来却如此大的差别？突然之间他回想起之前在庙里听其他师父说经时提过的 “痛苦，无常以及一切皆空” 这时候，阿占爹突然顿悟了，他在想，原来佛陀所说的都是对的呀。之后他决定深究佛法，他把想法告诉了他的母亲，阿占爹说，当时他的母亲听后顿时泪流满脸。阿占爹就这样的到了庙里，日以继夜的研究佛法经典以及学习打坐，他说，那些经书总共有24本，每本比砖头还要厚。在21岁时他就正式剃度出家了。

Kathina is a Buddhist festival which comes at the end of Vassa, the three-month rainy season retreat for Theravada Buddhists. The season during which a monastery may hold a 'Kathina' festival is one month long, beginning after the full moon of the eleventh month in the Lunar calendar (usually October). It is a time of giving, for the laity to express gratitude to monks. Lay Buddhists bring donations to temples, especially new robes for the monks.
As the legend goes, thirty bhikkhus were journeying with the intention of spending Vassa with Gautama Buddha. However, Vassa began before they reached their destination and they had to stop. According to Buddha's guidelines for Vassa, mendicant monks shouldn't travel during the rainy season as they may unintentionally harm crops and/or insects during their journey. As such, the monks had to stop.
Afterwards, the Buddha rewarded the monks by demonstrating a way to practice sharing and generosity. A lay disciple had previously donated cloth to the Buddha, so the Buddha now gave that cloth to the group of monks and told them to make it into a robe and then offer it as a gift to one of them. A frame, called a Kathina, was used to spread the robe while it was being made.
To celebrate Kathina a temple must have at least 5 monks or above that spent 3 months for the rainy season retreat, hence Wat Sungai Siput doesnt have Kathina festival because there are currently just 3 monks in the temple.
