The Nottingham University Buddhist Society held their 7th Annual Camp at Nalanda Centre from 24 to 26 March.  The objective of the camp was to let participants understand the dangers of attachments, and to develop Right View.

The conducive environment and support provided by Nalanda enabled the 30 campers to have an enjoyable and uplifting learning experience.  Several Nalandian speakers such as Bro. Tan, Achariya Vijaya, Sis. Paruadi, and Sis. Santī gave talks at the camp, and discussed ways to let go.
