Last Sunday 9 February, devotees, volunteers and Dhamma School students gathered at Nalanda Centre to participate in the “Tea-offering Ceremony” and Gratitude Day. This annual tradition is hosted by Nalanda Dhamma School and is an opportunity for us to express our appreciation to our parents, teachers and elders for their support and care.
After the morning learning sessions, students and children bowed with reverence to their elders, with an understanding of their sacrifices and selfless efforts. Their guidance and love have enabled us to grow with confidence and learn wholesome values. Parents and teachers then chanted blessings and extended their good wishes for our well-being.
We would like to thank the facilitators of Nalanda Dhamma School for organising this meaningful programme and everyone who participated in this ceremony. May we continue to take every opportunity to express our appreciation to our elders and teachers through our speech, thoughts and conduct.
