Today marks the 8th anniversary of Nalanda Institute Malaysia – one of the pivotal education arms of Nalanda Buddhist Society. We are grateful to be celebrating this milestone with a lot of positive energy and great aspiration to bring Buddhist education in this region to greater heights.
The first programme ever organized by Nalanda Institute was the ‘BPS138 Commentarial Course on Mangala Sutta’ in July 2007. Since that pilot programme, the Institute has grown tremendously and is widely recognized today as one of the leading institutions for Buddhist Studies in Malaysia. We have to date organised more than 150 programmes, seminars, conferences, study tours, and training courses that have benefited almost 10,000 participants.
This achievement is made possible with the commitment, unstinting efforts and passion of a team of volunteer-officers who firmly believe in holistic Buddhist education! We offer our salutations and thanks to our visionary Founder-Director Bro. Tan, our past Director Achariya Vijaya, current Director Achariya Tan Siang Chye, Institute officers past and present, lecturers, volunteers, benefactors, and all participants of our programmes. Thank you for making this celebration possible and meaningful for us at Nalanda Institute! Maha sadhu.
