Don’t just hope; be the positive change

In just a few days, we will bid farewell to 2021, a year which carried hope but also anxiety for most of us.  Accelerated vaccination rates showed prospects of turning the Covid-19 virus endemic even as new strains appear, and yet many people faced anguish and angst as loved ones fell sick or succumbed to the virus and struggled with livelihoods being compromised.  As we welcome a new calendar year, most of us can’t help but continue to hope for a more positive wind of change.

New Year’s Eve Message from Nalanda Buddhist Society

On this night of 31 December, we are very happy to have so many good friends here to complete the year of 2019 and welcome 2020 in a meaningful way.  In this last hour of the year, let us take some time to reflect on how we have spent our time, and see if it was well spent. What have we given our time to, what have we neglected?  Is there any time spent that we have just a little regret about, or maybe a lot of regret about?
