Wonderful Wesak at Nalanda J. B.

Bro. Ooi Boon Keat from Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang was invited to deliver a talk on Wesak Day.

This year, Nalanda Johor Bahru Branch arranged a wholesome two-day ‘Buddha Day’ Observance programme on 9 and 10 May at NEO Centre Taman Johor Jaya.  The Branch hosted three Dhamma talks, the ‘Buddha Jayanti’ Exhibition prepared by our Dhamma School students, the traditional evening Heritage Procession, mass food offering, and monk going on alms-round in Taman Johor Jaya Dedap zone.

The colourful and traditional evening Heritage Procession on 10 May.

The Buddharupam was conveyed on a wooden sedan, carried by six pairs of bearers.

This is the fourth year of ‘Buddha Day’ celebrations at NEO Centre J. B. since its opening in May 2013; and it is heartening to see a yearly increase in the number of devotees coming to participate in our Wesak educational programmes.

We would like to record our appreciation to our founder, teachers, benefactors, Dhamma speakers, members, volunteers, and devotees for your invaluable contribution to an inspiring Wesak celebration.  Anumodana!

In the early morning of Wesak Day, an alms-round was organised around Taman Johor Jaya for the public to offer food and make merits.

Another enjoyable Wesak celebration full of meaning and learning for Dhamma School facilitators and students.  Sadhu anumodana!
