Buddhism in Nepal

Founded by Buddha, Buddhism has been carried on through centuries and spread widely, relieving people from suffering throughout the ages and making great contributions to the development of Asian culture.

Nepalese Buddhism inherited the Mahayana Buddhist sutras which were established in India in original Sanskrit. The Sanskrit sutras which survived in the Kathmandu Valley, surrounded by mountains on all sides, contributed greatly to the modern research of Mahayana Buddhism. Nowadays, Sanskrit sutras studies all over the world include many that have been found in Nepal.
