Observing Uposatha Day meaningfully

A group photograph of the participants – May they find peace and joy!

On Tuesday 3 February, Nalandians returned ‘Home’ to Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang to spend a fruitful one-day meditation retreat in conjunction with the Thaipusam holiday.  It was a day to ‘let go’ of their busy routines and to practice being here and now.  Nalandians were striving diligently in their practice at the serenity of the Centre.

Participants practising diligently.

Nalandians also observed the Uposatha Full-moon Service with Pūja (offerings to the Three Jewels), chanting, meditation and Dhamma sharing in the evening.  We rejoice in the wholesome practice of Nalandians.  May they experience blissful peace and joy!
