‘Sangha Day’ was celebrated at Nalanda Centre today to honour the virtues and contributions of monks and nuns who strive diligently to bring Buddha’s teaching to the many. As part of our effort to support the Sangha and strengthen the Buddha-Sāsana, a parcel of land has been set aside at Wisdom Park to build a monastery in the future. That portion of land is located at the far end of the park, suitably secluded, and surrounded by forest reserve with a lovely stream flowing through.
