“The quality of a University is
measured more by the kind of students it turns out than the kind
it takes in.”
- Robert J. Kibbee
The Department of Pali is the only place under the jurisdiction of the SPPU which provides excellent facility for learning Pali and Buddhism from basic to advance level. In its short career the Department is recognized both nationally and internationally as one of the best centers of learning due to excellent teaching staff and innovative syllabus. We offer one of the best syllabi for Pali and Buddhist Studies. We have taken a holistic approach in the study of Buddhist Studies by including a number of related subfields such as Comparative Linguistics, Buddhist Psychology, Comparative Philosophy: Indian and Western, Buddhist Art, Architecture and Inscriptions, Buddhist Culture and History of Buddhist Thought, Socially Engaged Buddhism in our new curriculum. The Department has developed a strong bondage with local Buddhist community and Vipassana practitioners and is also successful in attracting overseas students and scholars.
