After a fruitful discussion and healthy dinner at Nalanda Book Cafe, it was smiles all round!
It was a delightful weekend spent with our new friends from Metta Lodge, Johor Bahru. Most being Sunday Dhamma School teachers, the main theme of the sharing sessions centred around the Nalanda Dharma School education model and how it works. Indeed, “the heart of education is education of the heart!”
