In conjunction with the upcoming Wesak Day, Mr. Vijaya Samarawickrama, the Director of Nalanda Institute, conducted a 3-hour course on the “True Significance of WESAK”, which aimed to better inform Buddhists on the right spirit and understanding of celebrating Wesak.
Mr Vijaya’s informative yet humorous presentation often left the audience in stiches!
“By knowing the Buddha’s greatness and honourable personality, it is only befitting that we celebrate this Sacred Wesak Day mindfully. We make it an occasion to learn, practise and understand Buddhism’s lofty ideals, which highlight our potential for the highest contentment, peace and happiness”
