What is Humanistic Buddhism?

Humanistic Buddhism encourages us to integrate Buddha’s teachings into our daily lives, for the benefits of all sentient beings, through kindness, compassion, joyfulness and equanimity. We need to take an active role and join others in the improvement of our present world via education, participation in charitable events and though cultivating (Buddhist practices in our daily lives) ourselves.
 
Humanistic Buddhism has six fundamental characteristics.
  1. Humanism

  6. Universality
Objectives of Humanistic Buddhism:

  • To purify human hearts and minds through Buddhist practice
