Too much science

The Buddhists are fighting with each other over the Buddhist College in Budapest, which specialises in eastern languages and philosophy. The problems started when a new head (professor of Eötvös Loránd University) was appointed in 2007 by the Buddhist church. A church leader, Pál Farkas complained that the Buddhist faith has been played down to the advantage of science.
