Regarding urgent robe offerings:
@Sabbamitta is right, the offering is urgent because the donor might die before the robe season starts. Of course, you can offer robe cloth at any time and there’s no need to wait for robe season. But it seems that people believed (and still believe today) that offerings during robe season are especially auspicious and people wanted to get the additional merit. So if you make an urgent robe offering, you can get the extra merit even if it is not quite robe season yet.
It seems that some people misunderstood the rule. Sorry for misleading you but my descriptions of the rules are just intended as a short reference and don’t cover all the details. I post a document / link at the beginning of every new class of offenses with the full text of the rules.
Yes, please discuss elsewhere.
And many thanks for your great work with SCV!
