Message from Prof.Vesna A.Wallace
The unique, sacred Buddhist heritage of India stands as a document of the great Indian culture that has historically influenced and shaped many societies and cultures across the globe. It has transformed the empires, dynasties, laws, education, and literary and artistic expressions in all of Asia throughout many centuries. To this days, it continues to inspire the faith and works of the practicing Buddhists and scholars from all over the world. This noble heritage, which is now neglected in India, deserves the continuous preservation and renovation. This is exactly what the Buddhist forum seeks to achieve.
