fostering information-sharing, respect, collaboration and friendship between Buddhist communities in Aotearoa

This page in te reo Māori

The formation of the New Zealand Buddhist Council (NZBC) was initiated at a meeting of fourteen Buddhist groups in Auckland in July 2007, and came out of a collective wish to share information and work together on issues of mutual concern and care for the wider community.

Our Vision

    • Working together as Dharma communities to benefit all.

Our Mission

    • Support our member organisations on common issues.
    • With our members promote the understanding and practice of the Dharma.
    • Develop understanding of our diverse Buddhist communities in Aotearoa, with interfaith groups, media, government and the public.
