The purpose of the association is threefold:
The primary aims of the Centre are to promote the integration of Buddhist Studies and Dharma practice. Under this broad aspect, BDCHK promotes the study and research of Buddhism through academic courses and publications. Enrolment to its academic programmes will be open to local as well as students from abroad and from both the lay and sangha communities. It will also conduct regular seminars, lectures and conferences and organize related activities which will be open to the general public.
Sri Lankan Buddhist Cultural Centre in Hong Kong (SLBCCHK) delivers the philosophies of Buddhism by facilitating Theravada Buddhist practices aligned with Sri Lankan cultural events.
