Today marks the 170th day since the Nalanda Centre Building Expansion Project began in mid-May. Overall, the annex building is 86% completed, while the remaining work is progressing accordingly and is expected to be completed by December. We are very thankful to have achieved a 100% safety record, thanks to good cooperation from the consultants, builders, and sub-contractors.

In the early morning of Saturday 18 October, eager volunteers were at Nalanda Centre for pūja and chanting before leaving for the Seri Kembangan market. Our twice-monthly ‘Pindacāra’ (monks going on alms-round) Programme team was warmly welcomed by many devotees waiting patiently for the arrival of the venerable ‘bhikkhus’ (monks).
Nalanda members and devotees would like to felicitate and pay tribute to Most Venerable Sri Saranankara Adhikarana Nāyaka Thero on his birthday. We always remember the good deeds done by Ven. Saranankara for the community of monks and laity, and dedicate our metta-karunā to his well-being and happiness. We are grateful that such an inspiring monk as Ven. Sri Saranankara lives among us! We wish Bhante the best of health and great fulfillment in your humanitarian and education mission. We humbly salute thee, Bhante!
