On Sunday 25 September, Buddhist stalwart and Dhamma speaker from Johor Bahru Dr. Punna Wong Yin Onn visited Nalanda Centre to present his newly-launched book, “Walking in the Buddha’s Footprints: 100 Reflective Essays”.

It was Dr. Wong’s first visit to Sri Serdang after the expansion of Nalanda Centre; he was led on a tour of the annex building by Deputy President Bro. Charlie Teng.  Dr. Wong was also briefed on the Wisdom Park Project with its different components catering to healing, training, education, and cultivation.
