About The Event

About The Event

Pali is credited as one of the most important eastern language in which the authentic Buddhist teachings are encapsulated and entitled as Pali Tipitaka. In modern world, Pali Tripitaka is respected and considered as a treasure trove of Buddhist knowledge and an important carrier of the Buddhist doctrine throughout the world. With the recent trends of the comparative analysis of Buddhism with other modern disciplines such as, Psychology, Sociology, Politics, Science and vice versa, learning Buddhism from its original form has been increased rapidly. Especially rich application of Buddhism can be witness in practical context as means of figuring out various issues come across people in their daily life as side effects of the globalization. People are willing to study Buddhism more than ever in the past through its original form without following translations and secondary sources much. On the other hand, Buddhist Philosophy has been embedded in the Pali language so that to earn a proper knowledge on the principles of Buddhist Philosophy people must be able to understand the Pali language first together with its grammatical devices and literal values. Moreover the Buddhist Philosophy and the Pali language has a thorough relation so the understanding of the philosophy of language emirates a great light to grab the real essence of Buddhism.
