On Saturday 20 May, a team of Nalandians attended the Selangor State-level Wesak celebration organised by the State government and supported by the Selangor Buddhist Development Council (SBDC). The celebration saw a wonderful gathering of Selangor Buddhist community leaders and activists.  The event served to showcase traditional and contemporary Buddhist cultural performances from Malaysia and neighbouring countries.

At the event in Shah Alam, SBDC President Bro. Loka Ng spoke about the importance of unity among Malaysian Buddhists, and urged fellow Buddhists to serve and help one another.  While we may volunteer almost exclusively at one organisation, ultimately any noble Dhamma work we perform will benefit the whole Buddhist community.

The evening was filled with the spirit of comradeship and heartfelt appreciation.  We thank the State government and SBDC for spearheading this official celebration of Wesak in Selangor.  Sadhu!
