Notes and Events:

Nalanda Institute was conceptualised in January 2006 in response to the needs of the Buddhist community to have an institution for proper, systematic and holistic learning of the Buddha-Dhamma in Malaysia. The then Spiritual Advisor to Nalanda Buddhist Society, Venerable Dr K Sri Dhammananda Nayaka Thera gave his unequivocal support to the idea.

The Nalanda Institute was formally established in July 2007. Dr. Tan Ho Soon was appointed the Institute’s Founding Director by Nalanda Buddhist Society. Under its patronage, the Institute provides systematic Buddhist education and serves as a resource centre to the Buddhist community in Malaysia. Its primary focus is on Pāli and Buddhist Studies, Leadership & Management Training, Conferences, Learning Resource Centre and Buddhist Publications.

The Institute offers various courses in Buddhist and Pāli Studies leading to Certificate and Diploma levels, as well as short training courses to enhance leadership and management skills for Buddhist volunteers. All courses are freely available to the public in line with the Institute’s charitable objectives.

Besides its Centre in Selangor, the Institute’s courses have also been held in Kedah, Kelantan, Kuala Lumpur, Sabah and Terengganu, in collaboration with local Buddhist organizations. To date, more than 6,000 participants have benefited from the Institute’s courses, study tours and conferences.

Notes and Events:


In November 1992, a young man attended the Sunday morning Puja at the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association made an interesting observation. He noticed that there were many adults and children, but hardly any teenagers. This sparked a thought: what SJBA really needed was a section catering for youths to gather and interact while learning the Dhamma. Inspired by this idea, he gathered a group of teenagers and established the SJBA Youth Section. The year was 1993. Over the years, this section grew leaps and bounds under the guidance of that very young man, our dynamic founder and first chairperson, Bro. Ong Beng Chung, and subsequently, his successors who followed. In 1997, we decided to expand our gatherings into two separate sessions in order to fulfill and cater to the needs of two different age groups.

The Young Seekers Gathering, held on Friday night, caters primarily to college or university students and young working adults. Dhamma programs and activities are planned by a committee focusing on members spiritual development. The younger members, however, were given a different approach. Based on the concept of "by the members for the members", our Sundays Teen Quest Gathering sees a vibrant committee running the show with close guidance from their older brothers and sisters in the Youth Section itself. Having a younger committee often translates to having more creative and interesting Dhamma-based programs.

Besides our weekly gatherings that gives the much needed emphasis on Dhamma, our members also take up various projects such as camps, exhibitions, fellowship outings, and welfare activities. Having to take up the responsibility of planning and organizing these projects, our members embark on the practical approach to learning important living-skills such as peers-interaction, social and communication as well as leadership skills.

Through encouraging active participation and continual trainings, we hope to mold our members into responsible and capable Buddhist leaders of tomorrow. Ultimately, when they participate, we also hope that they will come to love and have faith in the Triple Gem and learn how to apply the Dhamma in their daily lives.


  1. To instill the love for learning, practicing and propagating the Buddha-Dhamma as to cater for the spiritual needs of the individuals.
  2. To build individuals with a socially-engaged attitude as to cater for the social needs of the individuals, the families and the society at large.
  3. To provide a conducive environment for the development of academic excellence among members.
  4. To implement a systematic Buddhist training and development programme for the members.


Towards a strong and committed youth group to cater for an integrated enhancement of an individuals overall quality with the Triple Gem as the members Supreme Guide.
