International Collaboration

We are committed to developing worldwide collaborations that enhance our academic environment and offer our teachers and students priceless opportunities to travel. We are motivated by our productive partnerships with prestigious universities around the world.

Lumbini Buddhist University (LBU) recognizes that in an increasingly interconnected world, the pursuit of wisdom and compassion transcends borders. Our commitment to fostering an environment of holistic education and spiritual growth extends to global collaborations that enrich the educational experience and promote cross-cultural understanding.

Areas of Collaboration

Academic Exchange Programs

Research Collaborations

Cultural Exchanges

Language Programs

Peace and Humanitarian Initiatives

LBU actively engages in academic exchange programs with universities and institutions worldwide. These programs facilitate the exchange of students, scholars, and faculty members, allowing them to explore different cultures, perspectives, and academic approaches. Such exchanges broaden horizons, enhance research opportunities, and nurture global citizens who appreciate the rich tapestry of human diversity.

Collaborative research initiatives form the backbone of our international partnerships. LBU collaborates with global research institutions, fostering joint projects that delve into critical areas such as Buddhist studies, sustainability, peace studies, and humanitarian efforts. These collaborations enable us to address complex global challenges through innovative solutions grounded in Buddhist wisdom.

Cultural exchanges are vital in promoting mutual understanding and appreciation of diverse traditions. LBU hosts and participates in cultural exchange programs that showcase the essence of Buddhism, Nepali culture, and the rich heritage of Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. These exchanges facilitate intercultural dialogue, fostering connections and friendships that transcend geographical boundaries.

LBU offers language programs, including Sanskrit, Pali, Tibetan, and Chinese, essential for the study of Buddhist texts and traditions. Collaborations with language institutes and universities abroad help us provide a comprehensive language curriculum, enabling students to access primary Buddhist sources.

With a vision of promoting world peace and social harmony, LBU collaborates with international organizations and universities to develop and implement projects that address pressing humanitarian issues. These initiatives reflect the core values of Buddhism and empower students and faculty to contribute meaningfully to global peace and prosperity.

I envision LBU as a beacon of enlightenment that transcends borders. Our commitment to becoming an international university is driven by the profound teachings of Lord Buddha, which inspire us to embrace diversity, foster global collaboration, and make wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness accessible to all corners of the world. Together, let us illuminate the path to a more interconnected and harmonious global community.
