About the Conference
Chinese Buddhism has made significant contributions in terms of philosophy, political discourses,
literature and art, leaving behind a spectacular cultural legacy. One of Master Sheng Yen’s life-long
missions was to make Chinese Buddhist teachings and values known. The Bi-annual Chinese
Buddhism & Sheng Yen International Conference was started in accordance to Master Sheng Yen’s
mission and has been a valued revenue of academic interactions for many Buddhist scholars. It is
part of Sheng Yen Educational Foundation’s effort to build a multi-channeled and interdisciplinary
research platform for Chinese Buddhist Studies. The Foundation would like to invite proposals of all
recent discoveries, original perspectives, and new methods regarding Chinese Buddhism from all
approaches, including philosophy, culture, history, language, and text. In-depth academic studies
are essential to comprehending and promoting Chinese Buddhism. We look forward to your
participation to open a new page for the Chinese Buddhism & Sheng Yen International Conference.
