中国佛学网海外讯 据《印度时报》报道,印度古吉拉特邦政府联合印度萨亚基劳王公大学(MSU)将在2010年1月就古吉拉特佛教遗产举办国际佛教研讨会。为此,古吉拉特邦政府特在今年的预算中拨出一千万卢比赞助此活动。

2009年6月30日,印度古吉拉特邦政府公布该邦预算,宣布为萨亚基劳王公大学拨出一千万卢比用作组织一场有关佛教遗址的国际研讨会,以形成全球人民对古吉拉特邦佛教遗产的认识,并表示届时将会邀请印度著名学者和国际知名人士参加。

据悉,此次研讨会的主办单位为萨亚基劳王公大学考古与古代史系,并且他们已经开始就此次国际佛教研讨会的细节进行策划。

7月1日,考古学家Krishnan K博士接受《印度时报》采访时表示,从20世纪60年代起,萨亚基劳王公大学考古与古代史系就藏有前系主任B Subbarao教授带领的团队在Shamalaji附近的Devni Mori 挖掘出的佛祖舍利。而我们最近在Vadnagar 地区出土的佛塔也显示了古吉拉特地区佛教的存在。我们想要在世界佛教领域中确立古吉拉特地区佛教的影响力,而政府也认为该地区具有旅游潜力,对此表示支持。(编译:子规)

Gujarat govt allocates Rs 1 cr for international Buddhist seminar

VADODARA: With the state government making provision for organising an international seminar on Buddhist heritage of Gujarat in its budget this  year, archaeologists at M S University are gearing up to host the seminar in January next year.

On Tuesday, while presenting the state budget, government announced that an amount of Rs 1 crore will be allotted to MSU as grant-in-aid to organise an international seminar on Buddhist heritage to create global awareness about Buddhist monuments in Gujarat. The government, while making the provision, has stated that eminent scholars of national and international repute will be invited for the seminar, which will be organised by MSU in collaboration with the government.

MSU’s department of archaeology and ancient history, which will play a major role in organising the seminar, has already started chalking out the details.

Recent excavations carried out in Vadnagar region from where a Buddhist stupa was excavated also reveal the presence of Buddhism, archaeologist Dr Krishnan K told TOI on Wednesday. At the same time, we are now trying to understand, how can we project the influence of Buddhism in Gujarat on the Buddhist map of world. The state government is identifying regions having tourism potential and would like to incorporate sites having Buddhist influence in that. Since 1960s, the department itself is in possession of ashes of Lord Buddha which were excavated by a team led by former head professor B Subbarao when the team was excavating Devni Mori site near Shamalaji.
