Buddhist Ministry Initiative

Buddhism around the World Chaplaincy Conferences

Here is a recent article from www.buddhistdoor.net on the Buddhist Ministry Initiative.

The conference took place earlier this year at Harvard Divinity School (HDS) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The three-day event was titled “Education and Buddhist Ministry: Whither—and Why?” Here is the link to their program: http://hds.harvard.edu/academics/buddhist-ministry-initiative
The Buddhist Ministry Initiative, founded with the support of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation (http://www.rhfamilyfoundation.org/#!/programme/24), trains future Buddhist religious professionals to enter fields such as hospital or university chaplaincy and social work. Students can also learn Pali and attain knowledge in specific Buddhist scriptures.
For those interested in the similar program now being developed at the University of Toronto for Buddhist chaplaincy, these resources should provide useful context.
