The Satipatthāna Sutta Workshop held in Nalanda Institute may be over back in March, but its impact and the learning demand resonated throughout the country, whereby six other similar workshops were subsequently held in Penang, Perak, Johor, Sabah, Sarawak, and even Singapore, under the skilful guidance of Venerable Aggacitta Mahathero.
Nalanda Institute took the opportunity to support all those workshops by providing free course materials; and served as a resource centre to other organisers in ensuring the purpose of the workshop was met, and its delivery system was properly in place. At least 500 participants have benefitted from the teachings since the first workshop was held 6 months ago.
During the ‘grand finale’ of Satipatthāna Sutta Workshop held at Sāsanārakkha Buddhist Sanctuary (SBS), Perak, officers of Nalanda Institute together with other managers of Nalanda Buddhist Society made the effort to participate in this 4-day retreat. They were delighted to have learned from, and to be inspired by the sharing of Ven. Aggacitta, gathered from his past encounters while conducting the same workshop.
We are grateful to Ven. Aggacitta and rejoice in everyone’s effort in making the Satipatthāna Sutta Workshops possible nationwide. We wish for the Dhamma to long flourish and may many more practise the Buddha’s teaching conscientiously. Sādhu anumodana!
