This Sunday, we invite you to participate in our Sunday Morning Service at Nalanda Centre with meditation, offerings, and Pāli chanting, followed by another Dhamma talk by Ven. T. Seelananda Mahathera.
Nalanda Centre warmly welcomes Venerable T. Seelananda Mahathera on his Dhammaduta tour of Malaysia from 11 – 25 March 2017. Ven. Seelananda is the Deputy Abbot of Bhāvanā Society in West Virginia, USA. He regularly conducts meditation retreats and Dhamma studies throughout North America and Europe.
On Sunday 8 January, Nalanda Centre was honoured to host Venerable Ayya Sumangalā for a Dhamma talk on ‘welcoming happiness’. Ayya began her talk by commenting on festive greetings where we usually wish others happiness. While we are wishing ourselves and others happiness, are we all really working towards it?
On Saturday 17 December 2016, Nalandian volunteers and devotees gathered with much enthusiasm for the educational ‘Pindacāra’ programme in Seri Kembangan. Market-goers once again had the opportunity to offer food to two venerable monks from the Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple.
On Sunday 27 November, members and devotees gathered at NEO Centre Kuala Lumpur to observe a meaningful ‘Sangha Day’ to express gratitude and reverence to the monastic community for their tireless efforts in the preservation and propagation of the Buddha-Dhamma.
We invite you to participate in offering robes and requisites to Sangha members in conjunction with Nalanda’s ‘Sangha Day’ celebrations this weekend. The programme on Sunday 27 November includes a Dhamma talk by Achariya Vijaya, blessings, Robes offering, and lunch dāna to members of the Maha Sangha. For more information, please contact Bro.

On Sunday 20 November, devotees thronged Nalanda Centre in Sri Serdang to participate in the ‘Sangha Day’ celebrations. This annual observance day is to honour the significance and contributions of the monastic community towards the preservation and propagation of Buddha-Dhamma.
The Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple in Sentul was a hive of wholesome activity this morning with more than 150 devotees offering Sanghika Dāna in honour of its abbot, Venerable Bootawatte Sri Saranankara Nāyaka Thero, who turned 63 today. Despite it being a working day, many people have taken time off to participate in Dāna, which is testimony to the great esteem the community has for Ven. Saranankara.
Nalanda Buddhist Society will be celebrating our annual ‘Sangha Day’ next month at two venues – Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang and NEO Centre Happy Garden in Kuala Lumpur. ‘Sangha Day’ is dedicated to honour, appreciate and support the monastic order of bhikkhus (monks) and bhikkhunis (nuns) – the pillars of Buddha-Sāsana. On this day, devotees offer them robes as well as requisites such as medicinal products and food supplements.
