Sugata Buddhist College

About College

Sugata Buddhist College (Sister Organization of Nepal Buddhist Council) was established in 2012 affiliated to Lumbini Buddhist University. The college has been conducting a Masters in Arts in Mahāyāna  Buddhism. Since its establishment, the college has produced more than 150 scholars in Mahāyāna  Buddhism.

Mahāyāna  Buddhism, which is termed as ‘Great Vehicle’ in Buddhism, its philosophy was initially  focused on the students from the Newar Buddhist Community only. However, after the time span, many Non-Buddhists are found attracted towards the Mahāyāna  Buddhism to get formal education and Sugata Buddhist College is happy to accept them as students and spread Buddhism in wider range.  

In addition, the college instills in students moral values such as integrity, responsibility, empathy, collaboration and respect that are essential for students to be a good human being while nurturing their full potential, which are the main objective of Buddhism.
