Visak 2018/2561 Conference Announcements

The IABU was formed on May 28th, 2007, upon the culmination of the first ever symposium of Buddhist Universities held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand. The symposium was a part of the celebrations at the United Nations Day of Vesak, organised by Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University and sponsored by the Royal Government of Thailand. (The link to the 2009 Conference is broken, and we will try to provide the collection of articles at a later time.)

This year we are proud to present the details for our next major Buddhist conference. See immediately below:
