As outlined in its constitution, the New Zealand Buddhist Council is a membership society with representational and charitable objectives. It aims to build worthy relationships within the New Zealand Buddhist community as well as between Buddhist and other faith communities. It represents Buddhist perspectives to the Government and within wider society.
