Spiritual gathering on Magha Pūja with Ven. Pemaratana
On 6 March, Nalanda members and volunteers warmly welcomed Ven. Dr. S. Pemaratana, Abbot of Pittsburgh Buddhist Centre, on his first trip back to Malaysia since the pandemic. The visit started with a tour around the Wisdom Park campus and an introduction to this educational facility dedicated to train Buddhist leaders and develop Dhamma teachers.
On this auspicious day of the Magha Full-moon, Ven. Pemaratana gave a Dhamma talk on the ‘Path of Purification’ to devotees who gathered to commemorate ‘Magha Pūja’ at Nalanda Centre. He reminded us that when we put effort to purify and train our mind in every moment, we can change mere understanding to personally experiencing the universal truths as taught by the Buddha.
We extend our appreciation to Ven. Pemaratana for giving us the opportunity to learn more about these factors which helps us progress in our spiritual journey. We humbly invite venerable sir to visit us again at Nalanda on his next trip to Malaysia, and wish him good health and success in his noble endeavours. To listen to Ven.
