After 2 years of physical construction which began in January 2018, Wisdom Park is gradually being transformed into a delightful campus which will host training and educational programmes for future Buddhist leaders and teachers. The facility is on schedule to be operational by 1 May 2020.
Last Sunday 4 August, we invited volunteers and stall operators of the recent Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ 2019 for a simple lunch to thank them for their contribution towards the success of the event. The Organising Chairperson, Sis. Evelyn expressed her deep appreciation to everyone for their support in hosting the largest Family Fun Fair to-date.
With just a few days to the Family Fun Fair, Nalanda Centre has been brimming with Dhamma School students, volunteers and supporters as the finer details of the Family Fun Fair are being finalized. Volunteer briefings, stall arrangements, community engagement, exhibition booth preparations, and ‘pre-sales’ are well underway as everyone is gearing up to host friends, family and visitors this Sunday 28 July.
Last Sunday’s Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ was the biggest event we ever organised in Sri Serdang. An estimated 12,000 people participated in the Fair to help raise funds for ‘Wisdom Park’. We owe the success of this event to our wonderful team of tireless volunteers who numbered around 400 this year. Your dedication to community service and selfless spirit were simply amazing!
Nalanda Buddhist Society would like to thank all volunteers, donors, and devotees who contributed to the successful and inspiring 4-day celebration of Wesak ‘Buddha Day’ earlier this week. Traditionally, the Sunday after ‘Buddha Day’ is dedicated to appreciating the spirit of selfless voluntary service. Hence, we invite all volunteers of the ‘Buddha Day’ celebration to join us this Sunday for the morning service, followed by blessings and appreciation luncheon.
The Nalanda Volunteer Centre (VC) was formally established on 1 May 2017 with the objective of engaging and growing our volunteer force. A ‘Volunteer Induction Programme’ was organised on 29 July for regular volunteers to strengthen the spirit and culture of community service.
