Over the weekend of 8 and 9 April, Nalanda Centre hosted a visit by our friends from Pa-Auk Tawya Vipassanā Dhura Hermitage (PATVDH) in Beji, Java. The group of ten was led by Bro. Phang Hok Lij on their first-ever visit to Serdang. Upon arrival, the visitors were warmly received by Nalandians, and brought on a tour of the Centre.
The main purpose of their visit was to meet with Nalanda founder Bro. Tan to seek his advice on organisational structuring, management, and development. After productive discussions, our friends were hosted to a hearty dinner at Nalanda Book Café in Sri Petaling. Rounding off their wholesome weekend visit, the group participated in the Sunday morning service to experience the dynamic learning culture at Nalanda.
The visit has added another link to the existing strong bonds between Indonesian Buddhist groups and Nalanda. We truly rejoice in their good work in propagating Buddha-Dhamma in Java and beyond. Sadhu anumodana!
