The Oslo Buddhist Studies Forum
The OBS Forum provides monthly lectures for Buddhist Studies researchers and students, Buddhist practitioners and all others interested in Buddhism.
The lectures - and occasionally courses - offered in The Oslo Buddhist Studies Forum are given either by IKOS or UiO researchers, by invited international Buddhist Studies scholars, or by Buddhist practitioners. The lectures in the Forum are announced in several international Buddhist Studies mailing lists and on the IKOS research webpage.
