On Saturday 13 May, Nalanda Centre was blessed by the visit of 20 monks and 2 nuns from Sri Lanka. The monastic congregation had come to Malaysia to serve the local community on the occasion of Wesak, when many Buddhist centres requested Sangha members to conduct religious activities.
The visiting Sangha members were hosted by President Sis. Evelyn Chow, Director of Nalanda Centre, Sis. Nandinī, and Nalanda Institute Head of Department, Sis. Sandy. The venerables were brought on a building tour, followed by a meeting with Nalanda founder Bro. Tan for discussions.
The venerables were very happy and impressed with Nalanda’s educational work, and gave us their encouragement and blessings to continue with our Dhammaduta endeavours. Bro. Tan also expressed our gratitude for their visit, remarking that it is a rare occurrence and a great honour to receive so many monks at Nalanda Centre in a single day!
We would like to thank the venerable monks and nuns for their kind visit and wish them a fruitful stay in Malaysia. Namo Sanghaya!
