On Saturday 18 February, 30 young adults between the ages 23 – 33 gathered at K. Sri Dhammananda Centre to learn how to develop calmness and strength in facing the adversities of working life.
The sessions were anchored by Bro. Tan Siang Chye, Director of Nalanda Institute Malaysia. He introduced the Buddha’s teachings on removing distracting thoughts, developing a mind that is not scattered, and the practice of loving-kindness which allow us to live a life that is firmly grounded and positively balances one’s mind for the modern hectic life. Besides the teaching sessions, Bro. Siang Chye also incorporated experiential learning throughout the day with guided meditation and simple reflective activities.
We thank Bro. Siang Chye for leading us on an inspiring and insightful day. We also thank the youth organisers, volunteers and participants for being part of this meaningful programme. Sadhu anumodana!
