Welcome!

This website is named after the Buddha’s doctor, Jīvaka, a revered figure from Buddhist scripture (see details). We intend this site to be a venue to bring more diverse voices into the contemporary conversation about Buddhism and wellbeing. We intend it to be a useful resource and conversation-starter for teaching and research projects related to Buddhism, religious pluralism more generally, and the intersections between religion and healthcare.
