From 3 to 5 June, eight Nalandians joined 120 youths from 10 other organisations to participate in the Seck Kia Eenh (SKE) Buddhist Youth Leadership Workshop in Malacca. The talks at this workshop were presented by notable luminaries of the Buddhist communities in Malaysia and Indonesia.
Well-known speakers included Nalanda founder Bro. Tan, Achariya Vijaya, Datuk Charlie Chia, Dr. Punna Wong, Bro. Irvyn Wongso, Bro. Handaka Vijjananda and Mr. Bugs Tan. Venerable Aggacitta and Venerable Ayya Santinῑ were also present to guide the youths in meditation sessions and to give Dhamma teachings.
The workshop was an insightful journey for youths to share and discuss how they can galvanize their efforts in moving Buddhist institutions forward in modern times. We thank the organisers of this dynamic workshop for bringing Buddhist youth groups together to strategise and deliberate on the future of Buddhism in Malaysia.
