On Sunday 10 January, parents of newly-enrolled Dhamma School students and new-comers to Nalanda Centre were invited to attend the first session of ‘Svagatam’ Induction Programme conducted by Bro. Aggaphala Yap.  The six-session course aims to introduce Buddhist values, culture and etiquette to its participants.  It also aims to provide essential knowledge on how to live in accordance with Dhamma.
