Dhamma teachers visit Nalanda

On Sunday 5 November, Nalanda Centre was honoured by the visit of 10 members from Maha Satipatthana Society (MSS) in Klang and 4 members from Malaysian Buddhist Meditation Centre (MBMC) in Penang.  This was a follow-up visit after the National Camp for Dhamma School Teachers organised by Nalanda in September 2017.

Wishing to understand and learn more about Nalanda Dhamma School’s education approach, our friends from the two societies participated in some activities at Nalanda Centre, including the ‘Samaggi Daypūja and chanting.  They also observed the running of Nalanda Junior and Teenage Dhamma Schools for the day.

The teachers were brought on a tour of Nalanda Centre by Bro. Charlie.

After lunch, the visitors were brought on a building tour, followed by a fruitful dialogue with founder Bro. Tan and some of the facilitators from Nalanda Dhamma School.

Having observed the running of Nalanda’s programmes, the visitors felt inspired by our approach to Buddhist education.  We hope that their visit will lead to the development of even better educational programmes at both Societies.  We thank our Klang and Penang friends for their kind visit.  Sadhu!
