Post Graduate Department of Buddhist Studies (PPT)
Established in 1987

The Department of Post-Graduate & Research Studies in Buddhist Studies was established in 1987. The vision and aim behind establishing this Department as a distinguished centre of Post-Graduate Teaching and Research in the North-Western state of India was to preserve and disseminate the traditional Buddhist wisdom and the chequered history of its glorious past in Jammu-Kashmir region which happened to be the most prominent stronghold of Buddhists from the days of Ashoka and Kaniska. The Department aims at bringing into light through research work, the philosophical wisdom, cultural glory and traditional art and architecture of Buddhist Kashmir, which is presently languishing in oblivion. There is enormous scope for research in the field of Buddhist Art, Architecture, Iconography, Archaeology, and Sanskrit and Tibetan Buddhism
