Nalanda members held our first Members’ Day in 2017 on Saturday, 18 February to review the Society’s latest developments. Nalandians were briefed about major upcoming events including Nalanda e-Run on 16 April and the National Members’ Convention from 29 April to 1 May.
At the meeting, Bro. Tan announced his retirement from the management team of Nalanda Buddhist Society. He explained that the time was ripe for him to withdraw from playing a management role as current leaders are capable of administering the Society very well.
Since last year, Bro. Tan had also progressively retired from the Theravada Buddhist Council of Malaysia and several other organisations. However, he will continue to spearhead the development of ‘Wisdom Park’ – an integrated Buddhist educational facility to be built in Hulu Selangor over the next few years. Nalandians offer our deepest gratitude to Bro. Tan for his inspiring leadership and wish him the very best in carrying out his noble Dhammaduta mission.
