On Saturday 5 September, the monthly educational ‘Pindacara’ (monks going on alms-round) Programme at Sri Petaling and Happy Garden markets was held with two venerable Sangha members going on alms-round. Devotees and members of the public waited patiently along the ‘Pindacara’ route, for the venerable monks to arrive and joyfully offered alms food.
Some devotees enrolled as volunteers to be of service in Nalanda’s future programmes, while some parents also enquired about the Dhamma classes at NEO Centre Kuala Lumpur. Nalandians then took the opportunity to share about ‘Wisdom Park’ Project.
After the alms-round, Director of Nalanda Dhamma School Sis. Sunanda Ong gave a Dhamma sharing on recognizing the craving in our life. We constantly seek to gain pleasurable things and avoid from unpleasant things. Such cravings bring much suffering and misery into one’s life. Practice of “dana” or giving out of generosity brings happiness to our life.
We thank the venerable monks from Sentul Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple, Sis. Sunanda, volunteers and devotees for your support and participation in this meaningful programme. May the merits accrued be shared with all beings. Sadhu anumodana!
