Event Details

In our MA (Buddhist Studies) programme, we teach a course on Socially Engaged Buddhism, where students learn about the various ways in which Buddhist practitioners have adopted social causes, which activity they view as an integral aspect of their practice. These include issues such as climate change, environmental degradation, gender issues, human and animal rights, livelihood support and so on.

Today, we bring together two individuals who have pursued a similar path. They have created wealth primarily as a means of social upliftment, in the spirit of service to humanity. Both of them also view their grounding in their respective religious traditions as a factor that nourishes this effort. We invite you to a conversation between two extraordinary individuals: Datuk Dr Lim Siow Jin of DXN Holdings, Malaysia and Shri Samir Somaiya, Chancellor of Somaiya Vidyavihar University.

Date and time: 22nd July, 2020 at 4.00 pm

The conversation will be conducted on zoom app.
