Engaging Lumbini Buddisht University (LBU) with 'Ecosociocentrism'.

Updated: Apr 30

As I embarked on the journey of promoting my latest book, 'Ecosociocentrism: The Earth First Paradigm for Sustainable Living,' the response from universities across the country exceeded my expectations. Stepping onto the stage to share insights from 'Ecosociocentrism' with students and faculty members felt like a homecoming, where the fervor for environmental activism and sustainable living ignited a flame of hope within each audience member. The halls of academia echoed with anticipation as I unveiled the pages of 'Ecosociocentrism' to eager minds hungry for solutions to the pressing environmental and climate challenges of our time. With each university talk, the vibrant exchange of ideas and impassioned discussions reaffirmed my belief in the power of 'Ecosociocentrism' to inspire meaningful change in our collective approach to sustainability. Standing before the bright faces of students and the seasoned wisdom of faculty members, I felt a profound sense of purpose as I delved into the principles and strategic policy imperatives outlined in 'Ecosociocentrism,' knowing that together, we were forging a path towards a more harmonious relationship with our planet.


Lumbini Buddhist University (LBU), Lumbini Province, Lumbini Nepal.

March 14, 2024, as an invited speaker of Lumbini Buddhist University, I delivered one and half hour-long talk/lecture on my book to the faculties, students and academic administrators including vice chancellor and registrar of the university. I presented a hard copy of my book to the library of the university through honorable vice chancellor Prof. Subarna Lal Bajracharya. It was, indeed, a moment of great honor and privilege for me to have this lively interaction and intellectual discourse on the most critical subject of global environmental and climate crises. The book’s chapter on Buddhism, its potential contribution, and its relevance in the resolution of this crisis generated a very lively discussion amongst students and faculty members.

A Guided Tour Visit to Devdaha Campus of Lumbini Buddhist University

On Chitra 13, as a guest of Lumbini Buddhist University, I visited Devdaha Campus of Lumbini Buddhist University. This campus currently runs Master programs in Agroforestry and Development Studies. This campus is in the process of starting a Master program in environmental studies. All these programs, Agroforestry, Environmental and Development Studies entail my special interest. I developed Agroforestry courses and started academic program in Agroforestry at Agriculture and Forest University (AFU) previously known as IAAS, way back in 2000.

It was, indeed, a very educational and learning experience for me too. I sincerely express my gratitude and appreciation to Vice Chancellor and Registrar of Lumbini Buddhist University for organizing my book talk event and field visit to Tilaurakot and Devdaha.
