Kumar today held a meeting to take stock of preparations for the international convention where a seminar would also be held on the `Role of Buddhist Sangh in 21st Century.`

The event is being organised by the Bodhgaya Temple Management and co-sponsored by the state Art and Culture and Tourism departments, the statement added.
