International Buddhist Conferenceon the United Nations Day of Vesak Celebrations31 May - 2 June 2555/2012Thailand
Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University (MCU), of which I have the honor of servingas its rector, has been privileged again to witness and play a crucial role in developing and hostingmultiple United Nations Day of Vesak celebrations and academic conference for many years, between2004-2007, and from 2009-2012. For in 2012, the ICDV has returned to our campus – bringingthe international Buddhist world closer than before. We are all very grateful to the Royal ThaiGovernment for its constant support, and thank the Thai Supreme Sangha Council for its blessings,guidance and support.We are grateful to the United Nations for recognizing our thrice-sacred Buddhist holy-day.It has been 2555 years since the death of our Great Teacher, and we have gathered here from acrossthe globe, from many nations, to again celebrate the United Nations Day of Vesak and Buddhajayanti:The Celebration of 2600 Years of the Buddha’s Enlightenment
For the celebrations this year, the International Association of Buddhist Universities (IABU),created from the collective efforts of Buddhists everywhere, plays an important role, yet again.The IABU was born from sustained collaborations between international Buddhist leaders andscholars, beginning to meet together under the auspices of the International Council for Day of Vesak (ICDV) celebrations, but has branched out to as the IABU Secretariat largely organizes the logisticsand academic portions of the conference. The IABU now aims to take the lead with improvingBuddhist Studies and higher education for Buddhists in general.This publication could not have been possible without the persistence, hard work, anddedication of MCU’s scholars and staff. I wish to thank all members of the International Council for Day of Vesak and the Executive Council of the International Association of Buddhist Universities,and the Editorial Committee for their devotion. I am also grateful to our additional donors, sponsorsand volunteers with the conference. We have done our best to bring you the ideals of the Buddhistworld.(The Most Venerable Prof. Dr. Phra Dharmakosajarn)Rector, Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya UniversityPresident, International Association of Buddhist UniversitiesPresident, International Council for Day of Vesak
