Nalandians Celebrate Our 10th Anniversary!

1 May 2013 was a special day for all Nalandians as we celebrated the Society’s 10th Anniversary! This milestone was significant as we recognised the growth and success of Nalanda as a Buddhist education provider over the past decade. Nalandians also aptly reflected with immense gratitude and appreciation for all the support, contributions and voluntary services by many devotees near and far, who have helped to forge Nalanda, in order for it to become the excellent facility that it is today. Thank you very much, and sadhu anumodana! Read more

Volunteers’ Sharing – Gan Jia Cheng

Bro Gan Jia ChengBro. Gan Jia Cheng

Nalanda Dharma School Facilitator,
and Officer in Photography & Archiving Team

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.

Sis. Margaret NgSis. Margaret Ng

Treasury Officer
Nalanda Buddhist Society

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.
