According to Theravada tradition, the Wesak Full-moon Day commemorates the Buddha’s birth, Enlightenment, and passing away some 25 centuries ago. This Wesak marks the 2,558th anniversary of His passing; hence the Buddhist Era (B.E.) 2558.
Nalanda Buddhist Society Sungai Petani Branch wishes all Buddhist teachers, practitioners and devotees a blessed Wesak ‘Buddha Day’! We thank all our leaders, members, and everyone who have contributed much since our establishment last year.
Our branch is currently focusing on two areas – 1. building the Nalanda Education & Outreach (NEO) Centre in Sungai Petani (building temple); and 2. building our members’ knowledge, skills, values, and spirituality through training courses (building people).
We rejoice over this sacred occasion of the Buddha’s Enlightenment, and wish all Buddhists much spiritual progress, peace, and happiness! ‘Sabbe satta sukhihontu’ – may all beings be well and happy!
