Taoist Association of China

Buddhist Association of China

The Buddhist Association of China (SC: 中国佛教协会) is a major organization of Chinese Buddhism. It was founded in 1953. The Buddhist Association has warned of Falun Gong, a qigong practice defined as an "evil cult" by the Communist Party of China, that is outlawed and persecuted in the People's Republic of China. However, the Association is a branch of the Chinese government, not an independent entity.

The current president is Venerable Master Yi Cheng, who was an organizer for the World Buddhist Forum.
