This year’s Nalanda Wesak ‘Buddha Day’ celebrations went off on a terrific start since early yesterday morning. The good weather brought a steady stream of visitors to Nalanda Centre throughout the day.
The Wesak Full-moon ‘Buddha Day’ commemorates the Blessed One’s Enlightenment 26 centuries ago. This full-moon marks the 2561st anniversary of His passing; hence the Buddhist Era (B.E.) 2561. Nalanda will observe ‘Buddha Day’ from 7 May (Sunday) to 10 May (Wednesday). We joyfully invite you to join us for the following ‘Buddha Day’ programmes lined up starting this weekend:
Just a pint of blood can save up to 3 lives! Blood donation is safe, painless, simple, and noble. It is also one of the most wholesome deeds one can perform this Wesak. We can make a life and death difference for others in need by coming forward to donate blood.
The Wesak Observance at Nalanda has come to a joyful conclusion on Wednesday, 14 May with the offering of lunch dāna and the departure of Sangha members. Over the 4-day Wesak Observance period, an estimated 3,000 visitors came to pay respects and participate in events at Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang.
Do you know that with a pint of blood you donate, 3 lives can be saved? Perform a wholesome deed this Wesak by participating in the Blood Donation Campaign. It only takes a little of your time to donate blood, but its effect on someone’s life will last forever.
