On Sunday 9 February, Nalanda Dharma School (NDS) organised a traditional “Tea Ceremony” at Nalanda Centre in conjunction with the Lunar New Year. The purpose for the ceremony was for children to express gratitude towards their parents. It was indeed heart-warming to see children bowing reverentially to their parents and hugging them, showing much gratitude and appreciation for their parents’ love, care and sacrifice.
On Saturday, 7 September, Nalanda Dharma School students, parents and devotees gathered at the NEO Centre in Happy Garden, Kuala Lumpur to celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival in a meaningful way. Opening the session with puja and chanting, it was followed by a Dhamma sharing by Sis. Faith Teh.
