Buddhism is an ancient non-theistic faith originating from the Indian subcontinent. The religion contains many strands, however, they hold in common the idea that the individual believer should strive to find spiritual fulfillment and inner peace through striving for enlightenment and liberation.

With at least 500 million adherents, largely located in eastern and central Asia, Buddhism is one of the world’s largest faiths.
