“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the
natural and the spiritual, it should be based
on a religious sense arising from the experience
of all things natural and spiritual as a
meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this
description. If there is any religion that could
cope with modern scientific needs it would
be Buddhism!...”.
Albert Einstein

Bulgarian Buddhist Society is the official Buddhist community in Bulgaria, registered on 23.06.2005 in Sofia City Court and included in the Register of Statutory Religions in the country.

But is Buddhism a religion?
Not exactly!...
It is a philosophical system of liberation from suffering, it is a complex set of philosophies, it is a set of cultural and spiritual practices, it is a way of living, loving, feeling, helping and thinking, it is a matter of perception and realization of The Most Important not only in this particular world, but in all
possible universes.

Buddhism is all of the above, and more, and more and more…
The beauty of Buddhism is that we can experience it in the way that suits us best, depending on cultural, individual, intellectual and temporal conditions. The Buddha is seen to teach different “levels” of Buddhism to different people in both the Theravada and Mahayana scriptures, and within the living traditions of both major branches of Buddhism we find multiple forms of belief and practice.
We, from Bulgarian Buddhist Society would like to work together with similar organizations in other Buddhist countries and other international Buddhist organizations.
