It is for this reason that the Buddhist Research Society established the Graduate School of Buddhist Studies in 2001 through the link programmes with the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka.  Buddhist Research Society, founded in 1983, has been promoting Buddhist education through the Buddhist Library and its activities, which includes courses and seminars conducted by renowned Buddhist Scholars from Sri Lanka, Japan, Europe and North America.

Students are free to make use of its amenities which include a resource center that houses many resource materials on Buddhism and related subjects such as psychology, ecology, and comparative religion.  It has an auditorium that could accommodate hundred people and two seminar rooms for lectures and tutorials.
