On Sunday 28 February, Ven. Ariyadeva Māha Thero, together with Ven. Swarnajothi and Ven. Wineetha, came to Nalanda Centre for a visit and meeting with founder Bro Tan.  The venerable monks were warmly received by Nalandians, and Nalanda Buddhist Society Deputy President Bro. Charlie Teng brought them on a tour of the Centre.

The venerable monks later met with Bro. Tan and they exchanged views on the development of Buddhist education.  Ven. Ariyadeva, who last visited Nalanda Centre eight years ago, was very happy to see the improvements to the Centre’s amenities, and the expansion of its education programmes in recent years.  We thank Ven. Ariyadeva Māha Thero, Ven. Swarnajothi and Ven. Wineetha for their kind visit.  Sadhu.
