On Thursday 6 July, the President of Selangor Buddhist Development Council (SBDC) Bro. Loka Ng, accompanied by Bro. Cedric Tan, paid a visit to Sri Serdang to discuss preparations for the upcoming National Conference on Buddhist Civilisation with Bro Tan.

The Conference will be held from 15 to 17 September 2017 at Cinta Sayang Resort in Sungai Petani, Kedah.  Bro. Loka consulted Bro. Tan on the proposed programme and logistical matters.  Among the highlight of the Conference is a visit to Bujang Valley to be led by Bro. Tan personally.

Bro. Tan will be leading a tour to Bujang Valley as part of the Conference. NEO Centre Sungai Petani will also host a visit by all speakers and participants.

Their discussion touched on the importance of accurately recounting the Buddhist history of Malaysia so that community leaders and Dhamma School teachers are able to inform future generations of our rich local Buddhist heritage. We applaud Selangor Buddhist Development Council for this crucial and timely initiative.  Sādhu ānumodanā!
