Once, the Buddha was residing near the town of Nalanda. A lay devotee by the name of Kevaddha approached Him and enjoined the Buddha to perform miracles so as to gain the faith of more people.
The Buddha answered that the only miracle He approved of is the ‘Miracle of Education’. Through education, the stingy learn to be generous, the hateful cease hating, and the ignorant gain understanding.
Thus, Nalanda Dharma School’s effort is focused on performing this very ‘Miracle of Education’.

With examinations just around the corner, it is only natural for students to feel tension and worry building up. Stress in the right amount can motivate students to start getting serious with their studies, but excessive stress can hinder learning and sap their energy. Knowing this and the importance of mental wellbeing, Nalanda Free School conducted two workshops on 11 August for UPSR and PMR students.
Aimed at imparting a joyful learning spirit in teenagers as well as strengthening their desire to seek knowledge, a 4-day 3-night camp themed “Joy of Learning” was held during the school holidays in Nalanda Centre. A myriad of activities such as challenging station games, mind-blowing ‘detective hunt’, captivating dharma talks and group discussions had successfully fired up their enthusiasm to learn more!
Teens came ‘Ahoy‘ to the fore at Nalanda’s recent “Lead-A-Ship” camp. Held from 1st to 4th December, the leadership camp had 45 teenagers bonding and becoming kalyana mittas, even as they pick up pointers to become good leaders.
Blessed in the beginning, blessed in the middle, and blessed in the end, the “I’m so Blessed!” camp, under the guidance of Samanera Amaranatho, showered some 32 participants aged 13 to 18, with torrents of joy and gratitude.
