Mission Statement  

Founded in 1995, Buddhistdoor Global (BDG) is an online Buddhist journal providing a diverse range of English-language Buddhist content to the world, centered on the Dharma and dedicated to serving Buddhist communities and helping practitioners navigate their spiritual path. Our diverse and inclusive editorial content encompasses:

• Buddhist studies and philosophy
• Buddhist thought, culture, history, and heritage
• Meditation, mindfulness, and Buddhist practice
• Socially engaged Buddhism
• Sustainable and compassionate living
• Current events and commentaries on contemporary Buddhism

BDG is expressly non-sectarian and strives to promote an egalitarian, progressive vision of the Buddhadharma that embraces all Buddhist traditions. In line with our aspiration to offer a free and open medium for sharing the riches of this ancient spiritual tradition—through which individuals and communities can learn, connect, and interact—our content is, and always will be, freely available to all.
