Youths visit teachers training institute

IPG teacher trainees and the visiting Nalanda youths at their first meeting.

On Saturday 9 January, the Institut Pendidikan Guru (IPG) Kampus Ilmu Khas Buddhist Society invited representatives from Nalanda Youth Centre (NYC) to visit them.  Nalanda youths were warmly welcomed by the teacher-adviser of IPG Buddhist Society, Bro. Johnny, and several teacher trainees.  The purpose of their visit was to foster spiritual friendship and to forge closer ties between NYC and IPG Buddhist Society.

During their visit, Nalanda youths introduced NYC’s regular activities through videos.  Bro. Jie Sheng also explained Nalanda’s Eight Core Values of Compassion, Courage, Respect, Integrity, Service, Faith, Learning and Reflection to the trainees.

The youths’ visit was fruitful and IPG Buddhist Society reciprocated with their own visit to Nalanda Centre the following week.  Some of IPG’s trainees even went on the recent Putrajaya Botanical Garden excursion organised by Nalanda Dhamma School and NYC.  We thank IPG Buddhist Society for their visits and goodwill.  May the kindled Dhamma friendship continue to grow and blossom.  Sukhihontu!
