The teaching of the Buddhist philosophy is to enable students to understand the true meaning and purpose of life. To help other fellow beings to make this world a better place to live in not only for the humans, but also for all sentient beings. The emphasis is not only on the betterment of one’s own living but also on inculcating the essence of compassion and peace in one self and to promote it in the world.
The educational objectives and pedagogical programmes at this department are addressed to perpetuate the priceless heritage of philosophical thought of such masters at Nalanda as Nagarjuna, Aryadeva, Asanga, Vasubandhu, Candrakirti, Dignaga, Dharmakirti, besides the Buddhist siddhas. Their works are studied as in the traditional scholarship fashion.
The students are groomed to inculcate the core of spirituality enshrined in the texts, to understand the meaning and purpose of human life, to help one’s fellows in making the world a better place to live in as also for all sentient beings. The central message is intended to help cultivating compassion and peace in oneself and promoting it in the world as well.
