We aim to keep our work cross traditional and value all forms of Buddhism, firmly believing that Buddhism and other Asian traditions hold much of great value for our modern society.

We carry out various activities including lectures, conferences, and courses and have a substantial library of Buddhist Studies. Through these activities we wish to make the rich religious and philosophical resources of Asia available to all. We welcome all scholars, students, researchers and members of the public who wish to use the library or attend our activities.

The world is blind. Those who see are few. the mind is difficult to master and unstable. It goes where it will. It is good to master it. The mind mastered insures happiness.
