About usFBAC is conceived based on a Chinese Buddhist Center in Frankfurt. As the centre has been vacant for more than two years, without any Buddhist monks and nuns to provide regular Buddhist teaching or conduct spiritual practices so that there was no way to be able to follow the noble path of the Buddha Sakyamuni.

Being fully aware of the necessity to continue Buddhist activities at the centre in Frankfurt, we as senior members of the International Buddhist Institute in Paris, have decided to accept the responsibility of the Buddhist centre in order to disseminate the noble teachings of the Buddha.

Our visions are

Promote peace and harmony through Buddhist teachings

To offer all people the opportunity to learn and practice Buddhism according to the teachings of the Buddha.

Advance Buddhist scientific research and collaborate with different Buddhist institutions, organizations and universities in Germany as well as in other European countries

To promote Buddhist ethical and moral values and work for the wellbeing of humanity
