Ari Buddhism is the name given to the religious practice common in Bagan, Burma, prior to Anawrahta's rise and the subsequent conversion of Bagan to Theravada Buddhism.

It was a mixture of Mahayana Buddhism, Hinduism and nat worship. Some scholars are said to have claimed that it was a branch of Tantrism related to the Asarya Buddhism of Nanzhao and the subsequent Kingdom of Dali in modern-day Yunnan, China.
