Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai
The Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai (BDK) (Society for the Promotion of Buddhism) was founded by the Reverend Dr. Yehan Numata in December 1965. Working with a community of like-minded people, including leaders of each Buddhist sect in Japan and eminent Buddhist scholars, Dr. Numata established the BDK in order to "transmit the Buddhist religion to as many people in the world as possible, without expounding the doctrines of any particular sect or denomination." To achieve this goal, the BDK promotes a wide range of activities and projects in the hope of contributing to world peace and mutual understanding among humanity. Today, the BDK's mission to the world is continuing under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Numata's oldest son, Mr. Toshihide Numata.
