The Finnish Buddhist Union

The aim of The Finnish Buddhist Union (SBU ry.) is to act as a co-operation organisation of Finnish Buddhist groups. It works to maintain Buddhist values and to encourage the practice of Buddhism in Finland. It actively encourages harmony and tolerance between different religions and world views.

The Finnish Buddhist Union (SBU ry.) represents all member organisations equally to the state, to scientific  organisations and to national and international 3rd sector organisations. It works to make Buddhism visible in Finland and to develop equality between Buddhists. It tries to ensure that Buddhists’ religious needs are met by public institutions, like educational and health care institutions.

Ordinary membership can be applied for by a Buddhist group. An individual who wants to support the work of the Union can apply for a support membership. Applications should be sent by email to the Secretary.
