On Thursday 3 March, the Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Buddhist Society held its first weekly group meditation for the new semester at Nalanda Centre. It was led by Venerable Chi Xiang (持向法师), who also gave the undergraduates a Dhamma talk. The session was well attended and the undergraduates were pleased to resume their regular group sitting after the break.
The UPM meditation group and Ven. Chi Xiang are regular visitors to Nalanda, having held many weekly sessions as well as a couple of meditation retreats here. Nalanda welcomes university groups to organise their own programmes and activities at our Centre. We have consistently supported the running of Buddhist activities in universities and colleges throughout the country since 2003.
