The first module of “Buddhist Devotional Practice” Course organised by Nalanda Institute attracted a good turn out on 19 April. The session was conducted by the Director of Nalanda Institute – Achariya Vijaya Samarawickrama – a well-known, experienced, and passionate Dhamma speaker.
Achariya Vijaya explained the importance of understanding the spiritual meaning of various rituals, including making offerings at the altar, prostrations, and reflection on symbolic objects of veneration. Participants benefited from the new-found knowledge and understanding through this course, and consequently confidence in their practice was enhanced.
This series of “Buddhist Devotional Practice” courses contains 3 other modules which will be held on Saturdays – 26 April, 3 May, and 10 May. We welcome everyone to register for these beneficial talks to understand deeper the Buddhist teachings and devotional practices. This is especially important and pertinant, as Wesak ‘Buddha Day’ is fast approaching.
