Buddha Day in Johor Bahru

Buddha Day in Johor Bahru

The community walking solemnly in the annual procession which is a part of Nalandian heritage.

‘Buddha Day’ was celebrated meaningfully at Nalanda Johor Bahru Branch with various educational and devotional programmes organised for the local community.

At the break of dawn, devotees started the auspicious day with ‘Pindacāra’ (almsround) and devoutly offered dāna to Sangha members.  Nalandians also immersed themselves with chanting, observing the 5 or 8 precepts, practising meditation, and learning from a Dhamma talk by guest speaker, Bro. Ooi Boon Keat.

a peaceful and meaningful celebration for everyone.  Sādhu!
