Ryukoku University and the China Tibetology Research Center concluded the agreement on the promotion of academic exchange on 2011, and have interchanged diverse ideas concerning both Tibetan and Buddhist Studies. This event will be the third occasion for both institutions to have such interaction.
What kind of situation is the research on the Sanskrit manuscripts inherited in Tibet currently in? How are the studies of Tibetan history, religion, and culture? The China Tibetology Research Center and Austrian Academy of Sciences published the revised text of the Sanskrit manuscript of the Pañcaśatikā Prajñāpāramitā on 2016. Ryukoku University also has contributed to this research project. We hope to take this opportunity to comprehend the current situation of Tibetan Studies in both Japan and China, actively exchange ideas, and examine how the international research projects will be in the future.
