On Sunday 29 October, Nalandians requested blessings from venerable Sangha members to begin piling work at the site of ‘K. Sri Dhammananda Centre’ in Sri Serdang. The slight afternoon drizzle did not hamper the blessing ceremony on site; instead it cooled the air and added to the solemnity of the occasion.
Five venerable monks from Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple graced the event, and upon arrival, were respectfully welcomed by Nalanda members. They were led across the street to the construction site, where they recited suttas and verses of auspicious blessings.
The proposed ‘K. Sri Dhammananda Centre’ is dedicated to holistic community education. It will afford additional room for the recruitment of more students into Nalanda Dhamma School, which is currently facing an acute shortage of space. This Dhamma-learning facility is thus built for the benefit, welfare and happiness of generations to come. We thank you for your good wishes and kind support!
