Nalanda Buddhist Society joyfully wishes the Malaysian Buddhist community, “Happy Wesak Buddha Day”, year 2559 of the Buddhist Era. Wesak Full-moon today marks the anniversary of Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment, and ‘Parinibbāna’ (Passing Away) twenty-six centuries ago. It is indeed the most sacred occasion for us to recollect His noble teachings that leads to liberation from suffering.
Buddhists should not throng temples and Dhamma centres just to perform rituals; it would be better and more beneficial for everyone to also learn the teachings of the Buddha by listening to talks, reading Dhamma books, and discussing Dhamma with wise teachers.
This year’s Wesak theme at Nalanda is “Being a Good Practitioner & Good Friend”. Let us all strive to practise Dhamma well as it brings immense and untold blessings to the practitioner and others in the community. Let us also be ‘kalyana mittā’ (good spiritual friends) to fellow practitioners – to encourage and motivate them along the path of spiritual progress.
We look forward to welcoming you at Nalanda Centre in Serdang, and at NEO Centres in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru. May all beings be well, happy and peaceful. May all beings be free from suffering. Thank you and Happy Wesak!
