Online Certificate Course on
Bodhgaya and Buddhism


The online course on multifaceted aspects of Bodhgaya and the Philosophy and Teachings of Buddhism emerged through the ongoing programme of Bodhgaya Global Dialogues held in the years of 2018, 2019 and 2020 which weaves together the diverse resources of Bodhgaya.

The course examines understanding of multi-religious and multicultural sites of Bodhgaya, like Buddhism and Sanatan Dharma; exploring heritage of Bodhgaya; its art, sculpture and history. Bodhgaya is also home to more than eighty Buddhist monasteries like Thailand, Bhutan, Japan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam etc. which forms one of the focal areas of the course.
