Pañña naranam ratanamWisdom is man’s most precious gem.
The goal of Buddhist cultivation is the attainment of wisdom to realise truth. The Buddha spent 45 years educating and guiding the monastic and lay communities so that people can ‘see the truth’ for themselves. The Buddha called this ‘anusāsani patihariya’ – the “miracle of education” – and, the only miracle which He approved. (Dīgha Nikāya Sutta no.11, ‘Kevatta Sutta’.)
Nalanda Buddhist Society is currently planning for an integrated educational and training centre for the Buddhist communities in Malaysia and Singapore. The spacious 39-acre ‘Wisdom Park’ will be equiped with facilities for various training programmes aimed at transmitting knowledge, skills, values and culture. It will also have residential facilities for full-time Dhamma practitioners and long-term volunteers. The park is located in Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor, 60km north of Kuala Lumpur.
