Over the weekend, Nalandians and devotees in Johor Bahru came together for a time of bonding and Dhamma learning.  On Saturday, 12 April members of Nalanda JB Branch had their first Members’ Day held at the NEO Centre in Taman Johor Jaya.  Founder Bro. Tan was present to share on Buddhist culture, teachings and practice.  Members had an interactive session and shared their reflections, in line with Nalanda’s 8 Core Values.

The next day, Bro. Tan delivered a Mandarin Dhamma talk during Service Sunday.  Members and devotees had a meaningful time connecting with spiritual friends and learning to be good practitioners and friends.

We congratulate members and devotees for spending time learning the Dhamma, performing selfless service, and practising ‘samaggi’ (unity and harmony) along the way.  Sadhu anumodana!
