Nalanda Buddhist Society would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all volunteers, donors, supporters, and devotees who joined us in the recently concluded 4-day Wesak ‘Buddha Day’ Observance from 7 to 10 May.
This year, we had the most number of educational programmes lined up ever – featuring nine different speakers with an average of two Dhamma talks every day, a forum, an exhibition, and the distribution of 12,000 Dhamma books. Correspondingly, there was a significant increase in the number of participants in all activities, including the largest crowd at our Wesak evening Heritage Procession.
Though we are thankful for the great support received from the community, and the large number of participants who came, we rejoice even more in witnessing a vast improvement in the interests taken by devotees in meditation, listening to Dhamma, and sutta studies this year!
Knowing that more people are drawn to proper Dhamma learning and practice gives us greater satisfaction than just having huge crowds. It clearly shows that our Dhamma propagation and educational efforts are paying off considerably.
Once again, we record our humble appreciation to our benefactors, teachers, Dhamma speakers, members, volunteers, and devotees for your immense contributions to a fabulously inspiring Wesak celebration. Our unity and harmony in working for the welfare of the many is both a form of cultivation, as well as a result of it. Well done everyone – Sadhu anumodana!
