The World Fellowship of Buddhists (WFB) is an international Buddhist organization which was founded in B.E. 2493 (1950) in Sri Lanka where representatives from 27 countries from Asia, Europe and North America met for the first time in history.

There are two major schools in Buddhism: Theravada, teachings as preserved by the elders and Mahayana, the later development. The former is practiced in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), Laos, and Cambodia. The latter is more prevalent in China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan and Tibet.

Buddhism is practiced all over the world. While the Shakyamuni or Guatama Buddha originally taught in Nepal and India, the majority of those populations today are not Buddhists. Tibet, Bhutan, Thailand, and a few other Southeast Asian nations are primarily Buddhist, and there are large populations of Buddhists in Japan and China, and in Western countries Buddhist practices are being adopted and transformed rapidly. Buddhists their temples and their monks are present in almost every country of the world.
