“Life is beautiful at Nalanda”, said Sis. Faith Teh when describing her volunteering experience at Nalanda.

When I first came to Nalanda Centre, someone had told me that we ought to come in with “an open heart, and be as fresh as the first day, every day”! Since then, this advice has been the underlying mindset every time I come to Nalanda. By constantly staying fresh, this allows me to learn better and to always give my best in everything that I do. It also encourages me to find ways to improve myself, constantly.

Six years ago, a close friend recommended that I attend the talks and courses conducted at Nalanda. I was so inspired by each Dhamma talk here, as well as through the courses taught by friendly and knowledgeable Buddhist teachers. I was also touched by the Nalandians’ warmth and spirit of courage and compassion. I have truly learnt a lot and believe I have become a better person.
