On Saturday 1 August, the monthly educational ‘Pindacāra’ Programme at Sri Petaling and Happy Garden markets was held with three venerable Sangha members going on alms-round. The morning Pūja and chanting session at NEO Centre Kuala Lumpur was led by Branch Chairman, Bro. Eugene. Nalandians and volunteers then proceeded to Sri Petaling and subsequently to Happy Garden for the alms-round.
While devotees were waiting in line for the venerable monks to arrive, Nalandians took opportunity to inform the public about the significance of ‘Pindacāra’, the upcoming Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ and introduce the Junior Dhamma Class at NEO Centre Kuala Lumpur.
After the alms-round, Ven. E. Jeewananda Thero gave a short Dhamma sharing on ‘Pindacāra’ and ‘Giving’. Sis. Nandini further explained the importance of Dāna and to do the offering with a generous, joyful and non-remorse mind. This wholesome act will bring joy and happiness to oneself and others.
We thank the venerable monks from Sentul Sri Lanka Buddhist Temple, volunteers and devotees for your support and participation in this meaningful programme. May the merits accrued bring happiness to all beings. Sadhu anumodana!
