On Saturday 7 May, a large contingent of 55 members, volunteer teachers and Dhamma School students from Seck Kia Eenh (SKE) Temple (or formally known as Malacca Buddhist Association) came to Nalanda Centre for a visit. The group was on a one-day tour of several Buddhist centres in the Klang Valley, led by the temple’s Deputy President, Associate Professor Tan Kim See.
The cheerful Malaccans arrived around 10 am and were warmly received by Nalanda President Sis. Evelyn and other officers. Nalandian hosts Bro. Tong and Sis. Nandini brought the teachers and students on a tour of the Centre, where interesting Buddhist stories were shared. The group later met with founder Bro. Tan, who gave a short but inspiring talk to the visitors about different qualities and benefits of worldly education and Dhamma (spiritual) education.
After the talk, everyone sat down for a simple lunch at Srivijaya Hall. Bro. Tan Kim See later presented a donation to Nalanda on behalf of the visitors, which was gratefully accepted by Society President Sis. Evelyn. The Malaccans were later given an affectionate send-off by Nalandians, after extracting promises from our friends that they will be back to visit again, soon!
We thank the SKE group for paying us a kind visit, and for their support as well. A group of Nalandians will be returning their visit to attend a workshop in Malacca next month. May our spiritual friendship and camaraderie continue to grow and flourish! Sadhu.
