World Buddhist Population: Pre-eminence of Mahayana Tradition

By Dr. Daya Hewapathirane, Asian Tribune, Nov 2, 2014

It is noteworthy that until about 2010, the estimates made of the Buddhist population of most countries in the world, especially of the traditionally Buddhist countries, have been grossly under
estimated.

This led to the marked underestimation of the total Buddhist population of the world. Information published not only in most websites, but also reported in nearly all encyclopedias, almanacs and other popular reference sources on population, emanating predominantly from the western world, has been highly misleading, deceptive and grossly inaccurate. Gross underestimation has been the order of the day until very recent times.Dr. Daya Hewapathirane
