On Sunday 24 January, 180 students of Nalanda Dhamma School and members of Nalanda Youth Centre went on an enjoyable outing at Putrajaya’s Botanical Gardens. The students spent a glorious day in the open learning the meaning of kalyāna-mittatā (spiritual friendship) through healthy outdoor activities.
They were grouped into teams with names such as “Generosity”, “Caring”, “Forgiving”, “Trustworthy”, and “Sincerity” to help them understand the qualities of a ‘true friend’. Judging from the peals of laughter and beaming smiles, the students and youths really gelled during the fun activities designed to encourage team work, mutual respect and thoughtfulness.
Many thanks to the organisers and facilitators who took such good care of everyone, besides ensuring effective learning and bonding. Sadhu anumodana.
