The Fifth World Youth Buddhist Symposium

Theme: Ultimate Concern

1 – 4 August 2015, Thailand

Ever since ancient times, human beings have been constantly exploring life’s origination and ending, and seeking the meaning of life and death beyond worldly life. From the basic questions like why we were born or if there is another world after death, each of these concerns is heading the development of the human civilized society, caring human’s confusion and anxiety over life and death, and giving expectation for the suffering.

In this regards, we are pleased to announce the Fifth World Youth Buddhist Symposium will be held on the theme of “Ultimate Concern” and three sub-themes namely “Spiritual Well-being”, “Life and Death” and “Tibetan Buddhism Tradition” in August 2015 in the Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University in Thailand, where people can get together to think and talk about questions over life and death. Following the success of the previous four symposiums, we sincerely hope that this symposium would serve as a friendly and harmonious platform among Buddhist Community, other religious and the academia for their thorough exchange, in order to create a happy and harmonious environment for the mankind.
