On 6 June, Nalandians congregated at Wisdom Park to welcome venerable monks and nuns representing the Mahā Sangha to the first Sanghika Dāna held there. Ven. B. Sri Saranankara Nāyaka Thero who was present advised us to be consistent in living a Buddhist way of life to enhance our spiritual well-being. If we were to focus only on material comforts and neglect spiritual development, we may not be able to tolerate even the slightest adversity and difficulty.
In Nalandian tradition, all the rooms at the new building were first offered to be used by Sangha members. The four-fold assembly then unveiled a replica of the ancient “Asokan Pillar”, and rejoiced in this meaningful milestone in the annals of Nalanda. We thank all benefactors of Wisdom Park for contributing to this noble project. Sādhu!
