- Deface of Buddhist culture by the RSS mentality Orthodoxies organizing 2nd International Conference of Dharma Dhamma at Bhopal (India).Recently the Centre for Study of Religion and Society (CSRS) , New Delhi and Sanchi University of Buddhist-Indic Studies organized the second international conference on Dharma-Dhamma between February 28 and March 2 at Bhopal, M.P; India. Even they suggested the topics with mixing Hindu culture in Buddhist University. The SUGGESTED THEMES are:1. Apotheosis of the Buddha in theological trends through the ages2. Historical growth of Bauddha canons3. The world-view of Samsara in Hindu-Bauddha texts4. The emergence of Rishi, Sramana and Bhikku traditions in Sanskrit and Pali texts (Rise of asceticism)5. Pravrtti and Nivrtti traditions – evolution through the ages6. Hindu eschatology and Bauddha precepts of Nirvana7. Development of Yogic traditions8. Ascetico-intellectual movements in the Orient9. Concepts of time and reality in Dharma-Dhamma traditions10. Mysticism of the Middle Way11. Interpretation of Dhamma12. Consciousness studies in the Orient13. The Middle Doctrine beyond ‘Anatta and Atta‘14. Faith and Mindfulness15. Bodhi Sakkhiya dhamma traditions – morality, compassion and Brahma Vihara16. Importance of jnana in Buddhism17. Bauddha traditions in Tripitaka, Mulasarvastivada, Yogacara, Madhyamika, and texts such as vtamsakasutra, Sadhammasutra, Sukhavatisutra18. Hindu traditions in the Veda, Upanishad and Epics19. Dharma-Dhamma traditions in South IndiaAs Sanchi University of Buddhist-Indic Studies is formed for spreading Buddhist culture in India and abroad too. But there was no scope for true Buddhist intellectuals and I think a devotee personality and visionary of this university named Ven. Banagala Upatissa Nayaka Mahathero not in favor of this conference. It was encroached by Hindu orthodoxy RSS activists for deface of Buddhist culture. The question was why Chancellor Ven. Samdhong Rimpoche of this university permitted this theme. But they utilized the Government Grant on the Buddhism.If Hindu RSS activists want to spread their ideas, their Banaras Hindu University (UP) or Kalidas Sanskrit University Ramtek, Nagpur (Maharashtra) is in existence with their orthodoxy intellectuals.Not only this, they draw a Buddha picture by mixing Ganesh in their face on cover page. We must condemn the mentality of Hindu RSS and to vote against BJP in coming parliament election by showing our political power.*** Dr. Milind JiwaneNational ChairmanCivil Rights Protection cell
