Buddhism is a very tiny religion in Bulgaria, with about a thousand Buddhists in Bulgaria. Mahayana Buddhism alongside with Ancestor Worship is the traditional faith of the Vietnamese community (the population of this community, mostly from North Vietnam in Bulgaria declined from tens of thousands before 1990 to around 1,000 now) and some people of Chinese descent. Most of them visit the pagodas or temples two or thretimes a year but they always worship before the Ancestor altar at home every day.

A small number of native Bulgarians are converts to Theravada and Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism.
