It was a delightful day to have the ‘Pindacara’ at Seri Kembangan market, under the blue morning sky.

Report by Muditā

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).
