Nalanda Members’ Day at Sri Serdang

The meeting began with President Bro. Lee Kong Foo leading the Pūja (offerings to the Three Jewels).

On Sunday 1 February, Nalanda members from Sri Serdang and Kuala Lumpur Branch returned to their ‘spiritual home’, Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang for yet another family reunion.  The Members’ Day gathering was an important occasion to catch up with our friends and to encourage one another in our spiritual learning and cultivation.

Members received latest information from the different divisions in Nalanda.  Sis. Sandy revisited the Nalanda Education Model in reminding Nalandians on the importance of being a good practitioner and how it can help us in eradicating the cause and conditions of Dukkha.

The Director of Nalanda Centre, Sis. Nandini introduced Nalandians to the newly expansion building by highlighting the new facilities and their functions.  She reminded Nalandians to serve together in concord and harmony by quoting the Kosambiya Sutta whereby to have respect, love and reverence in our actions, thoughts and speech.  Sis. Nandini later brought Nalandians to tour and familiarize with the new extension.
