Being Well begins with Me!

Wesak Day commemorates the three-fold events in the life of the Buddha – His Birth, Enlightenment and Passing Away; and this year’s celebration marks the auspicious 2,600th Anniversary of Buddhism.  

Through the Buddha’s way of virtuous living and his insightful practice, He developed true understanding to gain liberation from suffering and attained ultimate peace.  He taught the world the ‘Way to Peace’, so that humankind can live free from strife and suffering.

“Being well” means ensuring our physical, mental and spiritual health.  Let this significant day be a reminder for all of us to follow the noble teachings of the Awakened One. 

Nalanda Buddhist Society will observe Wesak at Nalanda Centre and NEO @ Happy Garden with a series of programmes, including Dhamma talks, Sanghika-dāna, pindacāra, meditation, blood donation campaign and the Buddha Jayanti Exhibition. The highlight of the observance will be a “Night of Peaceful Celebration” on Wesak Night, 5 May, at 7.30pm.  All are welcome to join us in the celebration and cultivation of inner peace!
