Today is the full-moon of the first lunar month, also known locally as “Chap Goh Meh”, which means ‘the fifteenth night’ in the Hokkien dialect. It marks the end of the 15-day Lunar New Year celebrations, and is a significant day for the Chinese community. Traditionally, families would celebrate the festival with another round of joyous reunion, and aspirations for a happy, harmonious and bountiful year ahead.
Nalanda wishes everyone who celebrates “Chap Goh Meh” a wholesome and fulfilling time. May you and your loved ones be blessed with good conditions for further spiritual progress throughout the year. Sukhihontu.
