Department of Suttanta Studies
Suttanta, while Vinaya is greatly concerned with the conduct of Buddhist monks and Abhidhamma with understanding life, much elaborates the importance of possessing sublime values in a life; to encourage students to live with such a purpose is the main intention which shadows the tutoring in Suttanta Department. Seven teachers, actively present in the Department, work with good interrelation towards the goal, following both modern and traditional techniques in teaching. Selected beneficial discourses, covering a vast range in the Suttanta Piṭaka, would be taught in Diploma, BA and MA levels. For students in the Post Graduate level, it is encouraged to compile their Theses through a sweeping apprehension in Suttanta Piṭaka with much comparison of different Suttas.
