Dharma in Change:

Process and Development of Buddhism in Baltic Sea Area

An Interdisciplinary conference, Tartu, Estonia

Date: May 23 and 24, 2013

Venue: University of Tartu Library (1 W. Struve Str.), room 243

Buddhism has been in the countries and regions of the Baltic Sea Area already for many years and it is considered to be a part of the larger European and Global networks. Indic Buddhist concepts and its integration such as “mindfulness,” “meditation,” “non-violence”, “mental wellness,” “spiritual healing”, etc. have become common practices among the people of these countries.

Could we call Buddhism in Baltic regions distinctively as Baltic Buddhism or Buddhism, for example, in Estonia as Estonian Buddhism? What, then, is distinctive about European Buddhism or Baltic Buddhism, Estonian Buddhism etc.? Who speaks for Baltic Buddhism, Estonian Buddhism, Finnish, Latvian and Lithuanian Buddhism etc.? What are the relations of Buddhists of the Baltic Sea Area to those in Asia? What roles are left for Buddhism to play in Baltic regions?

With the aim of defining and redefining Baltic Buddhism, the Centre for Oriental Studies, University of Tartu, in cooperation with Estonian Oriental Society and Institute of Buddhism will hold an academic conference on “Buddhism in Baltic Sea Area.” The conference aims to study and review critically history of Buddhism, Buddhist practices, individuals, and institutions, and diverse Buddhist traditions as well as academic Studies of Buddhism in Baltic regions to date, which make uniquely Baltic Buddhism.

The conference is dedicated to the 75 birth anniversary of late Linnart Mäll (7.06.1938–14.02.2010), a founder of Buddhist Studies and promoter of Buddhism in Estonia
