On Thursday 12 June, devotees gathered at Nalanda Centre for the ‘Jettha’ month Full-moon Uposatha Day Service. The day marked exactly one month after the Buddha’s enlightenment. According to tradition, the Buddha spent that period pondering upon the many facets and details of Dhamma, and enjoying the bliss of ‘Nibbāna’.
Bro. Tan gave a profound yet very practical talk on the spiritual quality of ‘gratitude’, and how to place it in the ‘middle of our hearts’. He also urged everyone to recollect the Dhamma often, which brings relief from the fires of craving, anger and delusion. Delighted and inspired by the down-to-earth teachings, we joyfully aspire to cultivate gratitude, contentment and humility, factors which lead to greater well-being in life. Sadhu anumodana.
