  • M.A. Pei-Lin Chiou

Pei-Lin Chiou received her first master’s degree in Religious Studies from the National Chengchi University in Taiwan. From 2009-2014 she further studied Indology at Heidelberg University in Germany and received her second master’s degree there. Currently she is working on her PhD project under the guidance of Birgit Kellner.

Pei-Lin Chiou’s main research interests are Indian and Tibetan Buddhist philosophies, particularly epistemologies which are related to Buddhist soteriology. She devoted her M.A. thesis submitted to Heidelberg University to Kamalaśīla’s (an eighth-century Buddhist philosopher) account of the analytical aspect of Buddhist meditative praxis, that is, the vipaśyanā meditation, found in his Bhāvanākramas. And the focus of her PhD project is to investigate how Kamalaśīla integrates the concept of yogic cognition (yogijñāna), a concept developed in the Buddhist logico-epistemological tradition as one of the means of valid cognition (pramāṇa), into his teaching of the meditative praxis, which has a close connection to his Yogācāra-Madhyamaka philosophy.

In May 2016 Pei-Lin Chiou started working at the institute. Her research is included in the project "Buddhismuskunde". Moreover, she is the editor of the online database "Epistemology and Argumentation in South Asia and Tibet (EAST)".
