On Thursday 12 November, Nalanda Dhamma School Director Sis. Sunanda Ong conducted a Dhamma workshop for members of Nottingham University Buddhist Society, Semenyih,  in conjunction with its 6th anniversary.  Sis. Sunanda spoke about positive transformation, highlighting the fact that true transformation can only come about when education is accompanied by cultivation.  She impressed upon the students the importance of putting their Dhamma knowledge into practice if they wanted to see tangible results in their lives.

She also explained the basic tenets of suffering, as well as wholesome and unwholesome deeds in relation to daily life.  The students later discussed the salient points of the workshop based on several case studies.  The night ended with a cheerful ‘birthday’ celebration for the society.  We would like to thank the students for their participation and wish Nottingham University Buddhist Society a very happy 6th anniversary!

The undergraduates attended a fruitful and thought-provoking Dhamma workshop.
