- Our work today will shape the discourse in times to come. This decade will be for societies that together hold a premium for learning and innovation. It will be about nurturing bright young minds that will add values to humanity in the times to come.
- Its research mandate will also include examining how the Buddha’s message can direct our modern world against contemporary challenges.
- The library will not only be a repository of literature. It will also be a platform for research and dialogue – a true dialogue between humans, between societies, and between humans and nature.
- The library will collect digital copies of all such Buddhist literature from different countries. The aim would be to translate them and make them freely available to all monks and scholars of Buddhism.
- Today, I would like to propose the construction of a traditional Buddhist literature library and scriptures. We would be happy to build such a facility in India and provide appropriate resources for it.
- In this journey, dialogue has been true to its core objectives including: encouraging dialogue and debate. To highlight our shared values. To carry on our ancient tradition of spiritual and scholarly exchange.
