New Year Greetings from Nalanda

Wishing many of our Asian friends joyous festivities this weekend!  Sukhihontu.

This weekend marks the New Year celebrations for our friends in many parts of Asia – across much of India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Bangladesh, and many Malaysians of Indian origin, too.  Nalanda wishes all venerable monks, our teachers and friends joyous New Year celebrations!  May this coming year bring peace and well-being to people around the world.  Sotthi.
