The central campus of Lumbini Buddhist University is situated in Lumbini and has become a place of immense attraction to the aspirant and devoted inquirers and students of Buddhism and secular subjects as well. Apart from its central campus, LBU has been conferring courses to meet the demands of aspirants through its constituent programs in several places. It welcomes both local and foreign students, creating a unique space for them to become experts in different fields.


In order to materialize its vision, LBU has adopted four basic initiatives: teaching, research, social services, and meditation. Its faculty and associates provide instruction on the Buddha’s teachings, conduct research across the broad field of Buddhist Studies, impart knowledge of canonical language, literature and Buddhist art, and support monastic education.


Lumbini Buddhist University envisions being an international center of academic excellence and a hub of scholarly interaction on Buddhist knowledge and practice that will contribute the welfare of humanity at large.
