Connecting hearts and minds at ‘Open Day’

Connecting hearts and minds at ‘Open Day’

Volunteers rejoicing at the end of the 2 days of wholesome service.

At Wisdom Park’s ‘Open Day’ on 8 and 9 July, 100 Nalanda members and volunteers were privileged to welcome friends and fellow members of the Buddhist Community, and assist them in learning more about this integrated holistic educational campus.  With much gratitude in our hearts for their support, we were warmed by everyone’s zeal to make the Buddha’s teachings available to the community, having experienced its efficacy in making lives more meaningful.

We share with you more endearing moments of care, camaraderie and rejoice, all of which led to the connecting of hearts and minds on this wonderful occasion.  We also extend our deepest appreciation to the organising team and volunteers for their dedication and extensive efforts in making each and every visitors’ trip a wholesome one.  Sadhu!
