Mission

The mission of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship (BPF), founded in 1978, is to serve as a catalyst for
socially engaged Buddhism. Our purpose is to help beings liberate themselves from the suffering

that manifests in individuals, relationships, institutions, and social systems. BPF's programs, publications,
and practice groups link Buddhist teachings of wisdom and compassion with progressive social change.
 

     We strive to:

  • Offer a public witness, through our practice, for peace and protection of all beings
  • Raise humanitarian, environmental, and social justice concerns among Buddhist communities
  • Bring a Buddhist perspective to contemporary peace, environmental, and social justice movements
     

               Our practice of contemplation and social action is guided by our intentions to:

Recognize the interdependence of all beings
 
 
 
Meet suffering directly and with compassion
 
 
Appreciate the importance of not clinging to views and outcomes
 
 
Work with Buddhists from all traditions
 
 
Connect individual and social transformation
 
 
Practice nonviolence
 
 
Use participatory decision-making techniques
 
 
Protect and extend human rights
 
 
Support gender and racial equality, and challenge all forms of unjust discrimination
 
 
Work for economic justice and the end of poverty
 
 
Work for a sustainable environment
