Lumbini Buddhist University uniquely combines an Eastern culture and tradition with all the dynamism of an ultra-modern and cosmopolitan society and therefore provides the perfect setting for an academic center that offers Buddhist studies set firmly in an international context.
Thank you for your interest in Lumbini Buddhist University.
Lumbini Buddhist University has been offering a broad range of Buddhist studies at postgraduate research, Master and undergraduate levels. Our courses covering social application, Indian Buddhism, Chinese Mahayana, Buddhist Canonical languages, and others are taught by a team of renowned Buddhist scholars from around the world.
We believe our programs of studies offer a new dimension to the study of Buddhism. The traditional approach of study is based on learning religious texts and commentaries, which was largely conducted in monasteries, and specialized institutes. Our programs go far beyond this by offering new perspectives on many other areas not traditionally associated with the study of the religion. The programs will offer students the opportunity to study Buddhism not only as a religion but also as a philosophy, an ethics system, and in metaphysical terms. They will also be of interest to those who wish to learn more about international academic research being carried out into the relationship between science and Buddhism.
Through a fundamental understanding of Buddhist teachings, the programs will enable students to develop better minds and life-management skills. In particular, our research programs leading to the award of Ph.D. degrees provide participants with the opportunity to explore how Buddhist teachings may add a new dimension to the science of the human psyche and how their application may enhance effectiveness in their personal and professional lives.
We believe that Lumbini Buddhist University uniquely combines an Eastern culture and tradition with all the dynamism of an ultra-modern and cosmopolitan society and therefore provides the perfect setting for an academic center that offers Buddhist studies set firmly in an international context.
Thanking You all!

Dr. Tilak Ram Acharya, the Registrar of Lumbini Buddhist University, is a founder teacher who has worked as assistant campus chief at the University. Lumbini Buddhist University has launched Buddhist Studies for the first time in Nepal with the utmost efforts of Dr. Acharya.
Dr. Acharya has played a catalytic role in promoting Buddhist philosophy, literature and academic development across the globe. His expertise prevails on good management of the University’s administration, too. More significantly, he has been working painstakingly to develop the University as an international research center for Buddhist Studies. He seized a phenomenal opportunity of pursuing Buddhist philosophy, Buddha’s teachings, and prospects of Lumbini as an international hub for Buddhist education while he had been active in Nepalese journalism for two decades. He was greatly influenced by the teachings of Gautam Buddha which showed him a pathway to earn a post-graduate diploma and master’s degree in Buddhist Studies. He has attained the highest level of degree of PhD in Buddhist Approach to Welfare State.
