A programme well-accomplished

Local Buddhist youth leaders gathered for 3 days at Gurun Buddhist Association, Kedah.

The long-awaited Buddhist Youth Leaders’ Study Tour to Bujang Valley from 14 – 16 September was joyfully accomplished!  We arrived at Nalanda Centre at 1.30am this morning (17 September) feeling inspired and greatly satisfied.  Nalanda Youth Centre would like to thank Bro. Tan for expertly guiding all of us on this amazing journey of discovery!  We would also like to thank the Nalanda Central Management in Sri Serdang, and our Sungai Petani branch Chairman Bro. Khaw Seng Giap for your great support and contributions.

We would like to record our deep appreciation to Gurun Buddhist Association and its leaders for hosting our 3-day stay in Kedah.  Special thanks to YBAM Kedah Liaison Committee for arranging the logistics of our study tour.  We also thank Central Kedah Buddhist Association, Changloon Buddhist Association, as well as the Buddhist Societies of both UNIMAP (Perlis) and AIMST (Kedah) for joining the tour.

All ears as we listen to Bro.Tan’s detailed narrative of Srivijaya’s history at the Bujang Valley Museum.

Thanks to ETN Explorer Sdn Bhd for arranging our ground transport, and our driver En. Azrul for getting us safely there and back.  Finally, we thank everyone who participated in this enriching study tour for your enthusiasm, great learning attitude, and wonderful companionship!  As Bro.Tan always reminds us, let’s continue this spirit of ‘learning, reflecting and growing’.  Sadhu anumodana, and thank you all!
