Where are Tushita’s Students from?

Between 2009 – 2015, we had students on our residential courses from 94 different countries!

In “Table A” you can see a list of the top ten nationalities over that 7-year period, and below a chart showing these top ten nationalities (and the 84 others!) by percentage.

One of the most significant changes we’ve noticed over the past 7 years is the shift in national patterns of participation, primarily – The Rise of India!!!

In Table B you can see the top ten countries in 2015, with India having overtaken Israel to take the top position.

Participation among Indian citizens has increased more than 5 times in 7 years – from 60 students in 2009 to 325 students in 2015!

Table B

The Rise of India to No 1!!

Here’s how that change has been happening – with India rising from the 6th most populous nationality in 2009, to the 2nd in 2014 and to 1st in 2015.

We rejoice – returning Buddha Dharma to the Motherland!

Also for intermediate courses, which show a much more even spread in nationality (and age), India has now risen to our biggest nationality!
