On Saturday 17 September, two venerable monks were invited to go on alms-round at Jalan Besar market in Seri Kembangan. The monthly alms-round is a keenly awaited event by market-goers and stall operators alike, as it enables otherwise busy people to offer food to Sangha members.
Venerable Sunanda praised Nalanda’s effort in organising this meritorious programme which allows hundreds of people to perform wholesome acts and learn proper ways of supporting the monastic order. He clearly saw the joy on the faces of alms-givers, and advised volunteers to continue their involvement in such wholesome deeds.
At the market, Nalandians also distributed ‘Thank you’ leaflets and tokens of appreciation to many stall-owners for their continuous support towards Nalanda’s annual Family Fun Fair and the monthly Pindacāra programme. Anumodana.
The next alms-round at Seri Kembangan Jalan Besar market will be held this Saturday, 15 October, from 8.30am to 9.30am. All are welcome to participate in this meritorious and joyful programme.
