Today is Nalanda Patron’s Day

'Transference of Merits' at last year's Observance.

‘Nalanda Patron’s Day’ is an annual programme to commemorate and appreciate all donors, benefactors and volunteers who have contributed tremendously to the growth of Nalanda, and by extension, to the development of Buddhist education.

On ‘Patron’s Day’, Nalanda members and devotees offer pūja for the well-being of our benefactors, past and present.  We also transfer merits to those who have passed away, including our late Spiritual Advisor, Ven. Dr. Kirinde Sri Dhammananda Nayaka Maha Thero.

Nalanda Buddhist Society first observed ‘Patron’s Day’ on 18 March 2007, in conjunction with the birth anniversary of the late Ven. K. Sri Dhammananda.  Join us for an evening of pūja, chanting and Dhamma talk by Bro. Tan at Nalanda Centre today.  Welcome all.
