Important Changes to Nalanda West Activities and Events

In light of current health concerns regarding COVID-19, we have decided to close Nalanda West until further notice to all non-essential staff/volunteers, Nalandabodhi members, and the wider local community.

Buddhist teachings emphasize the preciousness of our human birth and loving kindness, and in times of public health crisis it becomes increasingly important that we protect not only our own health but the health of others—those with whom we are directly connected, as well as those whom we may only encounter in passing. It is a kindness that we as a community remain calm and vigilant about COVID-19 so as not to put anyone at risk, sangha and beyond.

NalandaWest’s weekly offerings will be moved to online mediums such as Zoom and Facebook. All FacebookLive streams will be on the Nalanda West Facebook. Our zoom casts will be shown in the event details or sent directly to participants in closed groups.

For details go to the Nalanda West blog page.
