2022 Graduation Ceremony at Kathmandu University

The Graduates of 2022 made the journey from Boudha to Dhulikhel on the rim of Kathmandu valley to receive their degrees in the December annual degree ceremony at Kathmandu University (KU). Out of sixteen 2022 Graduates (5 MA in Translation, Textual Interpretation & Philology; 4 MA Buddhist Studies; & 7 BA) ten were able to attend. The Chancellor of KU and Prime Minister of Nepal, Sher Bahadur Deuba, presided, and speeches were made by the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor, Dr Bhola Thapa, and guest speaker, Dr Mrigendra Raj Pandey. After the ceremony, the graduates with the principal of the KU-Centre for Buddhist Studies at RYI had a celebratory lunch, with parents and friends, on the valley rim overlooking the Himalayan mountains, before returning to Kathmandu. A good time was had by all. Congratulations to the Graduates of 2022!
