India is set to host the Global Buddhist Summit, a first-of-its-kind event that will bring together top Buddhist leaders from around the world. The two-day summit, scheduled to take place in Delhi, will focus on Buddhism’s response to major global challenges.

More than 170 Buddhist masters from 30 countries are expected to attend the summit, which is being organized by the International Buddhist Confederation, a platform for Buddhists worldwide. The event will feature keynote speakers such as renowned scholar of Buddhism Prof. Robert Thurman and His Holiness Thich Tri Quang, Deputy Patriarch of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha.

The summit will address a range of topics, including Buddha Dharma and Peace, Buddha Dharma: Environmental Crisis, Health and Sustainability, Preservation of Nalanda Buddhist Tradition & Buddha Dharma Pilgrimage, Living Heritage, and Buddha Relics.

Prime Minister Modi is set to address the summit, which will mark an important moment for Buddhism, a religion that originated in India more than 2,500 years ago. Buddhism quickly spread throughout India and eventually became one of the major religions of the country. However, it faced persecution in India in the past and today, only around 0.7% of the population identifies as Buddhist.

The Global Buddhist Summit is expected to draw attention to the religion’s rich heritage and its potential to offer insights into pressing global issues. The summit’s organizers hope that it will encourage greater cooperation and dialogue between Buddhists worldwide and help to strengthen the religion’s place in the world.
