On Saturday 17 June, Nalanda Centre was honoured to receive a visit by Venerable Dhammavuddho Mahāthera, the Founder-Abbot of Vihara Buddha Gotama in Temoh, Perak; he was accompanied by Ven. Khantipalo and Bro. Vipassi.

Ven. Dhammavuddho was warmly welcomed by the assembly of Nalanda members in the Dhamma Teaching Hall.  He gave a concise talk to encourage Nalandians to continue with the good educational work done over the past decade.  Nalanda Buddhist Society took the opportunity to offer dāna to the Sangha Foundation, which supports programmes at Vihara Buddha Gotama.
