Secular Buddhism

We are the world's first "Secular Buddhism" university. As a degree granting institution, our lineage, which dates back four generations, has been recognized by the government of Vietnam.

OPEN UNIVERSITY

We are founded by the great grandson of a monk who was the founder of Linh Son Temple, which is recognized by the government of Vietnam, in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. Today, we still maintain our affiliation with said temple and practice its way of Buddhism. As an institution of higher learning, we provide a quality education with applied Secular Buddhist philosophy as our greatest creed.

OPEN TO ALL FAITHS

We do not fail students because the Buddha did not fail students. Buddhists are all life long learners.

We may in the future seek international accreditation.
