Lecture Series and Studentships
We are very grateful to have received a generous donation of £10,000 to go towards providing our ongoing Lecture Series over the next seven years.
Thanks to this donation we shall now be able to employ a dedicated member of staff to oversee the smooth running of the Series and we shall be looking at ways of creating more awareness of these lectures throughout the south of England.
The donation has been provided by Dr Thet Thet Nwe, FRCP (UK), originally from Burma and who has been Senior Consultant Paediatrician and Head of Pediatrics at Suri Seri Begawan Hospital, in Kuala Belait, Brunei. She is a long time member and patron of the Oxford Buddha Vihara and we thank her for her generosity in assisting us with the development of the Lecture Series.
The Lecture Series will be moving to Mondays at 5.30pm and we shall be holding them in both Michaelmas and Hilary terms for a total of six or seven per term. Details are currently being finalised for our Michaelmas 2011 term and will be posted on our site shortly.
Thanks are also due to Dr. Thet Thet Nwe for providing us with the amount of £500 to go towards a studentship. This joins the £500 already pledged from the members of the Oxford Buddha Vihara and its devotees, meaning that in the next academic year we will be able to provide two awards to assist Oxford University Students working within the realm of Buddhist Studies.
