Venerable Kassapa Mahathera

President, Maha Bodhi Society

We are extremely happy to announce the commencement of Diploma in Buddhist Studies and Certificate Course in Buddhist Studies from this academic year 2018-19. India today is proud of its rich heritage and culture, basically because of the influence of Bhagavan Buddha's teachings throughout 2600 years of its living history. One man's vision and effort has led to bringing this invaluable universal teaching of Gotama, the Buddha, to Indian people in modern times. It was his compassion which led to founding of the Maha Bodhi Society in Bangalore and its sister organizations all over India to disseminate Lord Buddha's original philosophy, psychology and ethical teachings enshrined in the sacred Tipitaka. This personality is the late Most Ven. Dr. Acharya Buddharakkhita, a meditation master, scholar of Pali language and Tipitaka, and educationist.
