The International Buddhist Flag was adopted as the universal symbol of Buddhist faith more than half a century ago. In Malaysia, this vibrant, multi-coloured symbol of peace is ubiquitous in temples and Buddhist centres during Wesak celebrations, but is barely visible for the rest of the year. As such, Nalanda Buddhist Society and the Theravada Buddhist Council of Malaysia are currently running a campaign aimed at educating the community on the meaning and symbolism of the flag, and to encourage Buddhists to fly the flag at home during Wesak month.
Do you know your TRUE potential? Come discover it for yourself at the upcoming ‘Dhamma-Living Camp for Young Adults‘ from 4 to 7 July 2016, where we get to explore the timeless beauty of insightful Dhamma, accompanied by 200 other like-minded friends!
