As we agonize over the fate of Malaysia Airlines MH370 which disappeared a few days ago with 239 people on board, let us also not forget the victims of a devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Eastern Japan 3 years ago today, on 11 March 2011.
On Sunday 9 March, a team of Nalandians led by Nalanda’s Deputy President Bro. Lee Teck Beng joined other religious groups to perform special prayers for the casualties of MH370 and their families at Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s Main Terminal Building. Let us continue to extend our compassionate thoughts to the passengers of MH370, their families, and loved ones. May they be blessed with mental strength and calmness. Wishing everyone much Peace.
Nalandians gathered on 8-10 March for pūja and chanting to share merits with the casualties of flight MH370 that went missing, and which presumably crashed into sea. The flight was a routine one from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. At this juncture, the circumstances surrounding the tragedy remain unclear.
