While sojourning at Nalanda Centre a fortnight ago, Ven. Sri Pandita Henepola Gunaratana took the opportunity to visit the Buddhist Māha Vihāra in Brickfields, and the Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.  Accompanying him were Ven. Mangala, Bro.Tan and a few Nalandian youths.

Besides the visit, several other venerables also came to pay their respects to Ven. Gunaratana at Nalanda.  Meeting with fellow monks and talking about the Dhamma gave Ven. Gunaratana immense joy and satisfaction.
