On Sunday 13 July, a bus-load of Maha Karuna Buddhist Society (MKBS) members and their Dhamma School students paid a learning-visit to Nalanda Centre.  The visitors arrived early in the morning and joined in the ‘Dhamma Day’ Service Sunday with pūja, chanting, and meditation.  Everyone felt happy listening to an insightful Dhamma talk by Nalanda Founder Bro. Tan, and thereafter performed Sanghika Dāna (lunch offering to monks).

On this festive occasion, Nalanda Buddhist Society wishes our Muslim friends ‘Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri’!

The past few months have been a trying period for Malaysia with several high-profile tragedies.  We as a nation and people must face it patiently with fortitude and resilience.  Malaysians of all religious persuasions should also use this opportunity to reflect wisely on the vicissitudes of life.  Let us treasure our existence, and live a beneficent and wholesome life.
