The Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ 2016 was successfully held today in perfect weather. The breezy day brought out sunny smiles on the faces of many stall operators and visitors to the Fair. Supporters were already streaming in even before its official opening at 9.00am; and in just two hours, the number of visitors had surpassed 4,000 people. Stalls were enjoying brisk sales, which kept everyone busy but happy.
When the ‘Fun Fair’ concluded at 4pm, an estimated 10,200 people had visited the event, making it the biggest ever gathering of people in both Nalanda’s and Sri Serdang’s history!
We are honoured and also humbled by the presence of so many long-term supporters as well as the appearance of new ones. We are also touched by the fervent backing given by outstation devotees from Singapore, Kelantan, Kedah, Johor, and many other states, who traveled long distances just to participate in this fund-raiser.
Indeed, this overwhelming show of support from the community has energized Nalandians and boosted our spirits to continue serving the cause of Buddhist education. We thank our fantastic team of selfless organisers, stall operators and 300 volunteers – we couldn’t have done this without you!
Thank you all for your trust, faith, encouragement and unstinting contributions. We are eternally grateful for your immense kindness. Sadhu anumodana!
