‘Dhammacakka Day’ is an annual observance day at Nalanda where we commemorate the preaching of the first discourse by the Buddha after His Enlightenment – the ‘Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta’. Falling on 9 July, it also marked the conclusion of the annual 6-week Gimhāna Retreat observed by Nalandians. We were fortunate to have Bro. Tan deliver the concluding teachings of this year’s Gimhāna Retreat followed by a study of the ‘Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta’.
The ‘grand finale’ of the Samatha & Vipassanā Sutta Workshop series was held recently at Subang Jaya Buddhist Association (SJBA) on 5 – 6 July 2014. It was the ninth workshop conducted by Venerable Aggacitta Mahathero since Nalanda Institute organised the inaugural ‘Samatha & Vipassanā Sutta Study with Meditation Workshop’ back in March.
Thank you for enrolling in the inaugural Samatha & Vipassanā Sutta Study with Meditation Workshop organised by Nalanda Institute’s Buddhist & Pāli Studies Department. Currently, the enrolment for this ground-breaking workshop has surpassed our capacity, and the application is now closed.
Nalanda Institute welcomed the return of Venerable Aggacitta together with Ven. Balacitta, Ven. U Vijaya, and 95 diligent yogis, for Part Two of the Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta Study with Meditation Workshop on 24 and 25 March.
