Nalanda Members’ Day in September

On Sunday 21 September, Nalanda Buddhist Society members from Sri Serdang and Kuala Lumpur Branch gathered for a ‘family’ reunion at our ‘spiritual home’ – Nalanda Centre – for another Members’ Day.  The gathering started with a piece of good news  – our youths’ effort in producing a video titled ‘Hope’ for Siddharthan Care Centre won the best short film category in a recent competition.  The inspiring video was shown to Nalandians, and everyone rejoiced at the achievement of Bro. Andrew Tan, Bro. Gan Jia Cheng and Sis. Tan Ee Yean.

After the video screening, Founder Bro. Tan was invited to address the gathering.  He updated members on the latest development of the Nalanda Centre Expansion Project, showing photographs of reconstruction work being undertaken.  The Nalanda Centre extension project is expected to be completed by November this year.  Bro. Tan also urged everyone to stay focused in developing the Society and to be committed in serving the public.

Members were also informed of future programmes and direction of the Society by several Nalandian officers.  It was indeed a fruitful Members’ Day as everyone gathered in ‘Samaggi’ (harmony and concord), and left with a renewed spirit and vision for the continued progress of Nalanda.  Sadhu!

NOTE:

The next Members’ Day will be held on Sunday 26 October, at Nalanda Centre, Sri Serdang.  All members are cordially invited to attend.
