• Dept of Buddhist Studies, JU organises Lecture on “Indian Constitution Based on Buddhism"

    The Department of Buddhist Studies, University of Jammu organized a Lecture on  by Mr M.S. Prabhu Maurya, Faculty, Department of BTTM, Lumbini Buddhist University, Nepal on the topic “Indian Constitution Based on Buddhism” In this lecture, he focussed that our democracy has been deeply influenced by Buddhist ideals and symbols. In the teachings of Lord Buddha, emphasis has been given to inner peace, he said, adding that the purpose of remembering these teachings on this occasion is that all people should inculcate the right meaning of the teachings and remove all the evils and inequalities to make a world full of peace and compassion. He also said that Dr.Bhimrao Ambedkar had said that many processes of ancient Buddhist associations have been adopted in the country’s parliamentary democracy. While there is a rich literature on the intersections of religion and public law in secular, research on Buddhism and constitutional law remains scarce. This scarcity is problematic not only from a comparative perspective but other academic virtues also. Other dignitaries present were Prof. Shohab Inayat Malik (HOD), Dr. Rajesh Sharma, Dr. Vivek Sharma, Dr. Ekta Kumari, Dr. Ashwani Kumar, Students and Scholars of the department.
