While on a visit to Sungai Petani last month, Nalanda Founder Bro. Tan was invited to deliver two talks – one at Central Kedah Buddhist Association (吉中佛教会) on 16 September, and another at Sammāditthi Meditation Grove on 18 September.  In essence, Bro. Tan spoke about ‘Dhamma practice’ – what does the term ‘practice’ mean?  What are the objectives of ‘practising’?  And what are the fruits and realization of proper practice?

Those two insightful talks were well-received and much appreciated by devotees.  Bro.Tan will be giving more talks in Gurun, Kedah on 31 October in the one-day ‘Dhamma Retreat’organised by Nalanda Sungai Petani Branch.  The retreat is open to members and devotees, and the programme includes meditation, chanting, Dhamma teaching, and group discussions.  Sadhu anumodana.
