On Saturday 4 February, Nalanda members and devotees from the neighbourhood gathered at NEO Centre Sungai Petani for our annual Lunar New Year “open house”. It was a happy occasion to meet good friends and make new ones.
First-time visitors were brought on a tour of NEO Centre to get to know the facilities and activities in Sungai Petani. Many people were delighted to see the beautiful and serene education facility, which includes a Dhamma Teaching & Meditation Hall, a reference library, meeting rooms, and lounges.
At the “open house” programme, a pre-recorded Dhamma talk by Nalanda founder Bro. Tan was played. He spoke about the ‘recipe’ for a happy New Year celebration, which in fact helped us to reflect much broader on the way we should live our lives.
We thank all visitors who thronged our “open house” at NEO Centre Sungai Petani, as well as generous donors who prepared food for all. We look forward to seeing everyone at NEO Centre again, soon.
