Buddhist studies flourish in colleges and universities from Smith to Stanford. We even have a new facial lotion called "Hydra-Zen," advertised as relieving skin stress, and a snack called "Zen Party Mix."

• Provide specific examples of prejudice or discrimination your selected religious group has experienced.

Many Buddhists have experienced persecution from non-Buddhists and other Buddhists during the history of Buddhism. Persecution may refer to unwarranted arrest, imprisonment, beating, torture, or execution. It also may refer to the confiscation or destruction of property, or the incitement of hatred toward Buddhists. Overall Buddhists don’t have it too bad compared to most of the other religions. They are a peaceful religion and tend to keep to their selves. I researched a lot of sources and found little or nothing about them experiencing a lot of prejudice or discrimination actions. The biggest threats they actually had was other Buddhist group which is odd for a religion. There was a great emperor in China that was a major influence in anit-Buddhist movements and even took military action against them. Christianity in my eyes is prejudice against any other religion that isn’t their own so I am sure at one time or another Christians have cause problems for Buddhists as well.

• What were the sources of this prejudice or discrimination?

The great anti-Buddhist persecution initiated by Tang Emperor Wuzong reached its height in the year 845
