On April 15, participants engaged in a reading seminar exploring the influence of Buddhism on bridge building. The group examined the role of Buddhist monks in infrastructure projects, classified two different groups of monks, and discussed the potential of digital tools for data analysis and visualization.

 The topic and reading materials were suggested by Cundao Li, and the meeting was moderated by Dr. Sunkyu Lee.
