Message from the Vice Chancellor on 11th University Day

Prof. Dr. Naresh Man Bajracharya

It gives me immense pleasure to be part of Lumbini Buddhist University (LBU). On this auspicious occasion, I would like to extend my gratitude and express warm greetings to all the concerned on the 11th Lumbini Buddhist University Day. Being the only Buddhist University of the country, located in the birth place of Sakyamuni Buddha, it envisages being an international centre of excellence in Buddhist Studies and research.

It has been a year since I have had an opportunity to lead this esteemed academic institution with zeal. As soon as I embarked in the University with a new role, realizing the need for a Master Plan to materialize the vision and mission of LBU. Eventually we have been able to formulate Academic Master Plan which had been approved by LBU Senate Meeting held in 27th Jestha 2072. We at LBU believe that the Master Plan will help us in achieving the set goals and objectives of LBU and to impart the teachings of Buddha across the globe for promotion of the World Peace. At this juncture I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all those who extended their support and cooperation to bring the University at this stage and look forward further support and cooperation from all concerned in the days to come.
