Twenty-four Nalanda Dhamma School students at NEO Centre Johor Bahru sat for their year-end examination on Sunday 15 November.  The teenagers, aged between 13 to 17 years, had been attending Dhamma classes throughout the year.  It was wonderful to see the students so well-behaved and eager to sit for the exam.  They were tested on their basic understanding of Buddhism. Dhamma School Director Sis. Sunanda was at NEO Centre to help oversee the smooth running of the examination.

While she was there, Sis. Sunanda was invited to give a Dhamma talk for Service Sunday. The topic was ‘Metta’, and she spoke about how the practice of ‘Metta’ can overcome hatred and anger in view of the recent tragedy in Paris.
