Back in Berkeley
The PNC was founded at the University of California, Berkeley and it encourages scholars, academic institutions, and universities to collaborate and exchange their academic resources and research expertise.
It is really wonderful, that Western Australia which is usually known for the mining boom, was represented by two people who deal with the academic aspect of Buddhism on international level. Until today, Western Australian universities do not have Buddhist studies at all.
Prof. Emeritus Lewis Lancaster from UC Berkeley was the key speaker of the first International Conference Buddhism & Australia was very satisfied with the conference, academic presentations and organizational work. He considered that it is necessary to establish connection between Perth and UC Berkeley
Already in 2012, Vello Vaartnou represented Australia at the UC Berkeley and introduced his century project, an online Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia to the international audience. Last year, Australia was represented by Marju Broder at the Berkeley PNC conference at the University of Macau, where the projects of Buddhism & Australia were discussed.
Two research papers on Buddhist history was presented at the PNC 2016 in Los Angeles this year. Vello Vaartnou research introduced Buryat Buddhist history( Samdan Tsydenov, Bidja Dandaron and the Abbot of Kumbum) and Marju Broder talked about Karl Tonisson, the father of Estonian Buddhism and his connections with Buryatia and Asian countries.
Guru mandala thanka made by Vello Vaartnou was presented to UC Berkeley and Prof. Lancaster
