Thank you Dad!

On Sunday 16 June, Nalanda Dhamma School students showered their fathers with love and gratitude in the Father’s Day celebration.  Students and devotees alike were filled with appreciation as everyone recollected the pivotal role that their father played in their lives.  This is especially so for fathers who not only enable their children to learn Dhamma, but have the compassion to actively provide and support Buddhist education for the children in the community.  We wish all fathers enjoy good health, peace and happiness!
