“Nalanda Patron’s Day” is an annual programme to commemorate and appreciate all donors, benefactors and volunteers who have contributed to the growth of Nalanda over the years, and by extension, to the development of Buddhist education. Nalanda Buddhist Society first observed “Patron’s Day” on 18 March 2007, in conjunction with the birth anniversary of our late teacher and spiritual adviser – Venerable Dr. Kirinde Sri Dhammananda Nayaka Thero.
On this day, Nalanda members and devotees perform wholesome deeds and dedicate merits to our benefactors for their well-being and happiness. We also dedicate merits to benefactors who have passed away, including the late Ven. K. Sri Dhammananda. Sabbe sattā sukhihontu – May all beings be well and happy!
