Nalandians take leave for the New Year

On Sunday 19 January, Nalandians gathered after the morning service and Dhamma learning sessions to “take leave” from their teachers for the New Year break.  An enduring tradition at Nalanda, they also sought blessings from Nalanda founder Bro. Tan, and thanked him for his patience and guidance throughout the year.

Bro. Tan advised Nalandians to celebrate the coming Chinese New Year meaningfully and spiritually, to have gratitude for our elders, and fill our hearts with generosity and kindness.  We wish everyone safe travels back to your hometowns.  May everyone be well and happy this festive season!
