The history of Unitarian
interest in Buddhism
stretches back more than two centuries.
But it is only in recent decades that Buddhism has come to be
a visible force within UU circles,
with the creation of the Unitarian-Universalist Buddhist Fellowship
and the phenomenal growth
of UU meditation groups across North America.
Now Buddhist texts appear in our hymnal
and it is common to hear Zen aphorisms quoted in the pulpit.
What exactly is the attraction that Buddhism holds for UUs?
What can we learn from Buddhism,
and what can Buddhism learn from UUism?
What does UU Buddhist practice look like?
