The Followers of Buddhism speak many languages, and the philosophy has not single language that unifies its followers. The oldest written works of Buddhist philosophy were written in languages of the Indian subcontinent, because that is where the philosophy originated.

Buddhism is not a language.


Buddhism and Buddhists do not have an official or sacred language. Buddhist documents where originally written in Sanskrit (and ancient Indian language) and later Pali ( a more modern Indian language) but Buddhist texts have been translated to most languages. When Buddhist get together they speak in the language of the country that they are in through translators.

Many early Buddhist texts were written in Pali, a language of India.It is the sacred language of Theravada Buddhism.


Buddhism is a religion/philosophy not a language. Although the original Buddhist texts were written in Pali, modern Buddhists speak local languages throughout the world.

This did not have a parallel with Buddhism and Pali.


Buddhism is a religion, it is not a language.


There is no language of Buddhism. Individual Buddhists speak whatever language they and their countrymen speak.
