Nalanda Institute Malaysia anniversary message b.e. 2567

It is with much joy and profound gratitude that I write this message on the happy occasion of Nalanda Institute's 16th Anniversary. This remarkable milestone symbolizes many years of unwavering dedication to the study, practice, and dissemination of the Buddha’s sublime teachings.  The first few months of this year witnessed many Buddhist organisations opening up for in-person activities.  With the easing of restrictions, Buddhists have been able to meet face-to-face, keeping the fervour of kalyana mitta burning bright in our community.  I do hope that we will soon close the unfortunate chapter of the Covid-19 pandemic with a deep measure of optimism.
