Nalanda founder Bro. Tan was recently honoured with an invitation to go on a ‘Dhammaduta’ (Dhamma-teaching) tour of India from 3 to 13 February 2017. He was the guest-of-honour and keynote speaker at the ‘Mahakarunā Diwas’ held in Delhi, Bombay and Nagpur, which were a series of lectures on Buddhist teachings organised by the Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre of Ladakh under the guidance of Bhikkhu Sanghasena Mahathera.
Throughout the tour, Bro. Tan spoke about various subjects covering essential qualities of Buddha-Dhamma – its compassionate activism, vigorous practice to purify the mind, and guidance by wisdom and realisation. He emphasised that the Buddha taught one ‘to understand suffering and to transcend it’ by cultivating morality, tranquillity and wisdom.
