Nalanda founder Bro. Tan was invited to launch the ‘Buddha Jayanti’ Exhibition yesterday afternoon accompanied by members of Nalanda Dhamma School.  The exhibition is an annual project undertaken by Dhamma School teachers and students to celebrate Wesak ‘Buddha Day’.

Over the years, the ‘Buddha Jayanti’ Exhibition has grown to become an esteemed Nalandian Wesak period tradition, as well as an educational attraction for many visitors to Sri Serdang.  The exhibition always carries that year’s Wesak theme, which presently is “Buddha – Our Teacher and Refuge”.
