In this talk delivered in early May, Director of Nalanda Institute Achariya Tan Siang Chye explains the importance of cultivating faith, and how we can anchor our spiritual practice and progress with this essential quality.
In this talk given on Buddha Day B.E. 2564, Bro.Benny Liow shares Buddhist teachings on how to cope with fear and anxiety in the face of uncertainties in life. He quotes from the Pāli Canon as well as from contemporary Buddhist teachers to highlight the practices that lead to tranquility.
How do we know that the teachings of the Buddha that we come across are indeed what He had taught? In this day and age, there are a growing number of misquotes of the Buddha found in social media. Content publishers ascribe quotes to “The Buddha”, to draw unknowing readers to ‘like’ their content. This inevitably leads to distorted views on Buddhism.
Namo Buddhaya! Last night, we concluded the final official programme to celebrate Buddha Day B.E.2564 – the “Night of Togetherness in Dhamma”. We hope the programme was a fitting tribute to the Wesak theme, ‘Tranquility in the face of Uncertainty’.
The highlight of today’s Buddha Day celebration is the “Night of Togetherness” at 8.30pm this evening. The programme features a special message and teaching by Venerable Ajahn Jayasaro, blessings by Venerable Sri Saranankara, and a Dhamma Talk by Nalanda founder, Bro Tan.
Join us in welcoming the dawning of Wesak ‘Buddha Day’ with an evening service on Wednesday, 6 May, at 8.30PM on Nalanda “Facebook Live”. The service features a short meditation and chanting session, and Dhamma talk by Achariya Tan Siang Chye, the Director of Nalanda Institute, on the “Qualities of the Enlightened Buddha”.
