Celebrating 15 years of holistic education

Dhamma School facilitators spend much of their time and efforts to ensure that their students not only learn the teachings of the Buddha, but also practise it in their daily lives.

On 1 January 2020, Nalanda Dhamma School celebrated its 15th anniversary with utmost gratitude to our founder, Bro. Tan, and all benefactors for their selfless support.  Since its inception, the School has focussed its efforts in performing the ‘Miracle of Education’, with the theme ‘The Heart of Education is Education of the Heart’ as its guiding philosophy.

We have witnessed students gradually changing for the better through understanding the purpose of life.  Many of its alumni are now serving the Buddha-Sāsana, advocating harmony and truthful living within their circle of influence.

May Nalanda Dhamma School continue to guide many more students in the future towards achieving integral character development.  Sādhu anumodāna!
