On Sunday 16 October, the Wisdom Park Development Committee (WPDC) celebrated its first anniversary of establishment and operation. WPDC was formed in October 2015 with initially 13 members, and was tasked with preparing the ‘Master Development Plan’ for Wisdom Park – the proposed education hub for the Malaysian Buddhist community. 3 more members were later invited to join WPDC to strengthen the team.
WPDC’s current 16 members include 4 representatives from Nalanda, 8 representatives of the Buddhist community, and 4 technical experts. The Committee members worked along remarkably well and harmoniously with a common purpose, under the able leadership of Nalanda founder, Bro Tan.
Over the past one year, WPDC has had 15 meetings, 11 Sub-committee meetings, and 6 site visits; it has achieved much progress towards realising the noble project. On behalf of Nalanda members and the local Buddhist community, we would like to thank all WPDC members for their contributions and sacrifice in accomplishing the project. Sadhu anumodana!
