Peter Skilling will be Visiting Khyentse Professor of Buddhist Studies at Savitribai Phule Pune University in November and December 2016. He will give two weekly classes.

These will include the Dhammacakkappavattana-sutta; excerpts from the ‘Fifty Jatakas' (Pannasa-jataka); and excerpts from the ‘History of the Recitation/Redactions' (Sangitiya-vamsa). Weekly lectures will discuss Buddhism in Southeast Asia, the Pali literature of Thailand, relics, and the ideology of blessing and benefits (anisamsa).
