On Sunday 11 January, devotees and parents were glad to attend a ‘welcoming’Induction programme after the morning session of meditation, Pūja and chanting. The 5-session programme aims to provide the essential knowledge on living in accordance with the Dhamma for the participants.
On Sunday 11 January, Bro. Tan gave a short but insightful sharing on respect. The Buddha had respect and reverence for the Dhamma. As we learn the Dhamma, we can realise the value of respect and its importance. Respect is shown through our conduct, speech, thoughts and attentiveness. Once we have the value of respect through much learning, all the spiritual qualities that result in joy and happiness arise in us. Hence, it is very important to have a learning attitude.
On Sunday 11 January, devotees gathered at Nalanda Centre for Service Sunday and were delighted after listening to a Dhamma talk by Bro. Ānanda Fong with the topic “Taking Refuge and The Three Jewels”.
