Patna,(BiharTimes): The lackadaisical approach to revive Nalanda University by Nalanda Mentor Group led by Amartya Sen and subsequently by the shallow advisers in recent days have finally vacated space of Buddhist diplomacy for China to rush in. The first batch of 220 students is ready to take off in September this year. Deadline for candidates registration is 31 July 2017.
Nanhai Buddhist Academy has opened at Sanya's Nanashan Temple in Hainan Province of China. Spread across 618.18 acre, the tri-lingual University is being led by monk Yin Shun( 1974 born). Panchen lama, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Thai and SriLankan Buddhist Centres are closely associated with the University.Monk Yin Shun is also the abbot of Lumbini-based Zhong Hua Chinese Buddhist Temple.
The University is located just in front of newly inaugurated 108 metre tall statue of Avalokiteshwara( December 2016).
The Chinese have also sidelined Sanskrit from Buddhist education and replaced it by Chinese. Nanhai Buddhist academy will have three language teaching-Pali, Tibetan and Chinese. They have already won support of SriLanka, Thailand, Nepal and other Southeast Asian countries.
Unlike Nalanda University which is still struggling with constructing boundary wall, and confused with mode of education; China has given the command of steering to Buddhist leaders and also made it into a monastic University like old Nalanda. Major meditation centre is being opened.The Academy will be complete in all aspect by December 2018.
The university is located 300 km away from Guiping. Guiping is another important city on upper portion of river Mekong to watch; where China has established the Theravada Centre for connecting with Theravada Buddhism of Southeast Asia where a major festival is being celebrated in July this year. The University is also in the vicinity of Guangzhou(Canton) which was the southern gateway of Buddhism into China. Nanhai does mean "South" and also "Boy". Nanhai Academy is China's Buddha Boy projecting unto South--both Southeast and South Asia. China has finally put into place the Tri-ratna of their own 21st century Buddhism- Lumbini (Buddha's birthplace), Wuxi (Brahma Palace as HQ of World Buddhist Forum) and Hainan( reinvented Nalanda University in the Brahma Loka of Sanya) with Master Yin Shun as the common thread.
Hainan is the place to watch for soft power of China––dotted with beautiful coast line, connected with air service, high speed trains, beautiful motorable road, international velodrome, golf courses, home to multi-hued butterflies, home to traditional Li and Miao people, their bamboo dance, their brocade skill,; it is a surfers and tourist paradise .
Buddhas can be seen in a Platter in Hainan. Five Color Rice, a traditional specialty of the Hainan Miao minority group in Qionghai, is a popular attraction here. Buddhists may connect the specialty with five Dhyani Buddhas.
The place is also rich with mango trees, bamboo groves, betel nut and betel plantations, translocating Nalanda ecology of Magadha onto this beautiful place.
To add to insult, the Chinese have termed the new Academy and its associated construction as Brahma Loka-- the place of Brahma.
Bihar's Nalanda where the newly appointed Vice Chancellor with an ugly track record both in academics and administration, and with no awareness at all about either Buddhism, or Asian diplomacy or spirituality, has taken over the command recently. She has made public her vision about introducing Vedic Education in Nalanda.
What a better way to hand over Buddhist legacy to China than to hand over the node of soft powers in the hands of decrepit.
