On 8 to 9 July, Nalanda members and volunteers joyfully welcomed members of the Buddhist community to Wisdom Park on its first ‘Open Day’. From small families to groups travelling in busses, volunteers gladly hosted Sangha members, Buddhist leaders, Dhamma speakers, benefactors, volunteers and devotees totalling more than 800 on guided tours throughout the two days.
Our guests were introduced the development of Phase 1 and its programmes to-date, as well as future plans to cater to the rising demand for Buddhist education. As at July 2023, the campus also welcomes Buddhist societies and groups to apply to utilise its facilities for programmes which are aligned with Wisdom Park’s objectives – to develop Buddhist leaders and Dhamma teachers, and to propagate Buddhist values and culture.
Let us together rejoice in the joyous gathering of kalyana mittas to glimpse the potential of Wisdom Park for the Buddhist community, and together realise these possibilities for the prolongation of the Buddha-Sāsana. Sadhu anumodana.
