NEO Centre in Sungai Petani opened

Nalanda Buddhist Society inaugurated our third Nalanda Education & Outreach (NEO) Centre in Sungai Petani, Kedah on 11 December 2015.  The centre was officiated by Venerable Bootawatte Sri Saranankara on 25 December the same year.

Sungai Petani is a rapidly growing municipality with the largest urban population in Kedah.  The famed Bujang Valley archaeological site is just 15km to the north.  The site was an important ancient trading post for the Buddhist Srivijayan Empire (7th to 11th Centuries CE).

NEO Centre Sungai Petani is strategically located near to a Teacher’s Training Institute and other institutions of higher learning.  It provides another much-needed facility for undergraduates and Kedahans to learn Buddha-Dhamma in a holistic and systematic manner.

If you share Nalanda’s vision and mission in holistic Buddhist education, integral human development and effective Dhamma propagation, the management committee is now appealing to you to lend a helping hand to realise this noble mission.

Monetary donations in cash/cheque can be given to NEO SP Centre or bank-in to Maybank 5521-0761-5249, payable to Nalanda Buddhist Society Malaysia (SP).

Kindly e-mail your transfer slip to, and we will issue you an official receipt.  Thank you for your support !
