Weekly Programme Update (16 - 22 April 2012)

Service Sunday
Date: 22 April 2012, Sunday
Time: 9am - 11am
Venue: Nalanda Centre
Topic: Buddha, Our Great Teacher
Speaker: Sis. Tan Yee Yong

What are the qualities of a good teacher?  What duties should students perform to their teachers?  Ultimately, the Buddha is the Great Teacher who taught us the path to liberation.  Come and join us this Sunday to reflect together on this topic!  We will begin the Service with sitting meditation, puja and chanting to quieten our minds before the Dhamma talk. 

Volunteers Needed for Wesak!
As Wesak Day approaches, we are stepping up our preparations and help is needed in various areas to get everything ready for the big day.  Active times are 7pm-10pm on Tuesdays-Fridays, and 1pm-3pm on Saturdays & Sundays.  

We also need volunteers on 4, 5 & 6 May 2012 during Nalanda's Wesak programme to ensure the activities run smoothly and all devotees have a meaningful and positively impactful experience.
