Buddhism can be found in every part of the world. There are many online forums and web sites where you can locate people in your area. It originated in India. It later spread to China and other countries. Here is my idea.

So far researcher believe that long ago Buddhism had spread southwards from its place of origin in north India to Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand, Indo-China, and other South East Asian countries. Buddhism also moved northwards into the Himalayan kingdoms, (Sikkim, Bhutan, and Nepal), Tibet, Mongolia, and other different parts of Central Asia and also into Korea, China, and Japan. The Asian countries which have Buddhism as their main religion are: * Mongolia * Japan * South Korea * Tibet * Bhutan * Sri Lanka * Myanmar * Thailand * Cambodia
