Humanistic Buddhism recognizes the Buddha lived in the human world and taught the Dharma in the human world, and that Buddhism should be for human beings.Humanistic Buddhism is Buddhism that is timeless, joyful, altruistic and life affirming.

     

    Through the comprehensive examination of Buddhism through its history, concepts, development and the Buddha’s life, we purport several principles. Buddhism is the Buddha’s original teachings for the human world. It is Humanistic Buddhism. Thus, we propose Humanistic Buddhism: Holding True to the Original Intents of Buddha.
