During the July school holidays, a group of Kelantanese youths who had participated in the Dhamma-Living Camp for Young Adults extended their stay in Selangor so that they could visit Nalanda Centre.  Having found much inspiration and joy after the camp, the group wished to visit Sri Serdang to continue their learning.

Director of Nalanda Dhamma School Sis. Sunanda warmly welcomed our friends and took them on a building tour, carefully explaining features that symbolise Buddhist teachings.  After an enlightening tour, Nalandians and friends settled down for lunch with mindfulness.

The Kelantanese youths were fortunate to have a ‘Dhamma-chat’ with Bro. Tan to further consult and discuss with him on Buddhist community development in Kelantan, as well as their personal cultivation.  Bro. Tan gave everyone uplifting advice and motivation to carry on with their practice and activities in Kelantan, so that more people will benefit from knowing the Dhamma.

Having spent a fruitful and inspiring week in the Klang Valley, our friends returned home with grateful hearts and renewed spirits.  The visit also helped to foster deeper friendship and fellowship between Nalandian and Kelantanese youths.  This was evident when our friends came back on 31 July to offer their selfless service in Nalanda’s Family Fun Fair!  We thank our friends for their kind visit and kinship.  Sadhu anumodana.

The visit strengthened the friendship between Nalandians and our Kelantanese friends.
