The Rains Retreat Tradition
The Rains  Retreat is basically a three-month period where monks do not travel away from one location for more than 6 days, and any travel has to be for Dhamma purposes only.  Monastics respecting the Rains remain in one place to concentrate on the teachings of the Buddha. Monastics teach others and take in-depth retreats, sometimes, themselves. Novices often come in for temporary retreats during this time.   (https://www.dhammasukha.org). It’s a traditional custom that devotees invite resident monks to practice this ritual for 3month is call Vas Aradhana.
