Nalanda hosts Theravada Council Meeting

Nalanda was honoured to play host to the final meeting of the Theravada Council’s Constitutional Drafting Committee on Saturday, 24 March 2012. Attending the meeting were Ven. Sri Saranankara Nayaka Thero, Ven. Aggacitta Maha Thero, and Ven. Dhammavuddho Maha Thero, together with Chairmen of the Pro-tem and Constitutional Drafting Committees, their secretaries and committee members.

The Theravada Buddhist Council of Malaysia (TBCM) will act as an umbrella body that unites and advocates the general interests of Theravada Buddhist associations throughout the country. TBCM has so far received enthusiastic support from many societies. A Pro-tem Committee comprising Buddhist leaders from several states was also appointed at a meeting on 11 February to spearhead the registration of the Council.

Nalanda’s President Bro. Lee Kong Foo and Vice President Bro. Lee Teck Beng represented the Society in that formalization meeting held in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.
