On the evening of 4 May Buddha Day, over 600 people gathered at Taman Seri Serdang for the highlight of Nalanda’s observance, the Heritage Procession. Maintaining serenity and peace, the community walked mindfully behind the Buddha-rupam which was conveyed on a wooden sedan to the harmonious beat of drums and gongs.
Keeping the mind tranquil, devotees held candle-lights lit by the flame of the altar from Pustaka Nalanda, where the Centre’s original Shrine Hall was first set up 20 years ago. Whilst hand-crafted paraphernalia such as parasols and flags brightened up the procession, they also signify honour and respect to the Three Jewels.
The colourful and stately procession was followed by stage performances by Nalanda Dhamma School students with a message of perseverance in order to live a meaningful life. It was a truly meaningful experience and we thank everyone for your contributions and participation. Sadhu anumodana!
