On Sunday 2 February, Nalandians welcomed a group of 15 Sangha members to Nalanda Centre to learn about Buddhist educational efforts in Malaysia. 12 of the young monks are currently undertaking higher studies in subjects including Pali, Buddhist philosophy and psychology in Sri Lanka. They were invited to Malaysia on a study tour courtesy of Venerable Sri Saranankara Nayaka Thero of Sentul Temple.
The group were brought on a tour of Nalanda Centre and K. Sri Dhammananda Centre, while learning about the programmes and activities offered by the Society, Institute and Dhamma School. The venerable monks remarked that they were inspired by both the meaningful designs which embedded many Dhamma symbols and the various educational programmes held for the community.
The monks offered blessings and words of encouragement to Nalandians to continue propagating the Dhamma. We thank the venerables for their kind visit, and wish them the best in their noble endeavours.
