Welcome to the July 2012 Issue of OCBS News.

In this issue we have two exciting pieces of news: the appointment of a new Numata Chair for Buddhist Studies at Oxford University, and the agreement of Aung San Suu Kyi to be our patron. More details on both below.


We also have a report from our Fellow Dr. Sarah Shaw on the recent International Day of Vesak, as well as her impressions of Buddhism in Southern Burma.

We end with details of an address Richard Gombrich recently gave in London, and some good news on the fundraising side.
