This weekend, Buddhists around the world will commemorate the anniversary of Buddha’s Enlightenment 26 centuries ago, and mark the beginning of Buddhist Year (B.E.) 2563. We invite you, your family and friends to join spiritual and learning programmes at Nalanda Centre, which includes Dhamma teachings, Sutta Study, and the highlight of our celebrations – the annual Heritage Procession and worshipping of Buddha Relic.
Nalanda Centre welcomes all devotees to pay the highest homage to our Great Teacher the Buddha’s Relic. Real Buddha Relics are highly esteemed and revered by the faithful, as they are the corporeal remains of the Blessed One. Many devotees experience a deep sense of joy, and are moved to tears by gratitude, when they think of the life of the Buddha as they worship His Relics.
