On 30 March, the Director of Pustaka Nalanda Bro. Ananda Fong delivered a Dhamma Talk on “Wise Reflections according to the Buddha’s Teaching”. The talk aimed at deepening devotees’ understanding of what is meant by ‘Reflection’, one of Nalanda’s Eight Core Values.
Bro. Ananda Fong shared his research into numerous Suttas where the Buddha explained the importance of contemplation, as well as the proper way to reflect wisely. He also encouraged everyone to make good use of the library at Nalanda and NEO Centres which house rich resources of reading material.
That weekend being ‘Samaggi Day’, Nalanda’s Honorary Secretary Sis. Buddhinī Tan was invited to deliver a message to all members on behalf of the Board of Management. Nalanda Founder Bro. H S Tan, who happened to be in Serdang on that day, made a rare appearance at the Service Sunday.
In conjunction with the ‘Qing Ming’ season, Bro. Tan later led the congregation in dedicating merits to our ancestors, departed relatives, and to all beings. Bro. Tan reminded us that the meaningful way to honour our departed loved ones is by offering our charity and services to help those in need. The audience was delighted to receive two Dhamma talks that day! We thank Bro. Ananda Fong and Bro. Tan for their wonderful sharings. Sadhu anumodana!
