Buddhism in Norway has existed since the beginning of the 1970s, after immigration from countries with Buddhist populations, mainly Vietnam. Buddhistforbundet (The Buddhist Federation) in Norway was established as a religious society in 1979 by two Buddhist groups (Rinzai Zen Senter and Karma Tashi Ling buddhistsenter) who wanted to create a common organization to preserve issues of common interest. Today, about 0.15% of Norway is Buddhist.
