No matter where you're living in the world, you may have heard that the
dairy industry is supported by the government, and the prices are
artificially low… or artificially high… or you may have heard both.
What's going on here? Is there a government conspiracy to make pizza
cheaper? Well… sort of.
Dear Mr Mazard, thanks for your interest in our Master Program in Buddhist Studies which has several tracks, among them tracks for Japanese and Indian Buddhism. As our Program has a strong philological orientation you will need to prove solid language skills in either Japanese or Sanskrit. Generally our Master students have gone through 4 years of intensive language training in their Bachelor. If you you are interested in the Master Program in more detail, please let me know about your work done so far in Sanskrit or, in case you are interested in the track "Japan", contact my colleague … Best wishes from _____,
I have had something like 10 years of experience working on Pali (and my work in that field is well-known, partly because I produced educational materials as a by-product of my own research, and these materials are now used by other students of Pali). However, I have zero experience
with Sanskrit, and I actively intend to never study Sanskrit. So, if the Indian side of your program works entirely on Sanskrit (not on Pali), then it is of no interest to me.
