Western Buddhism

A feature of Buddhism in the West has been the emergence of groups, which although they draw on traditional Buddhism, are in fact an attempt at creating a new style of non-sectarian Buddhist practice. Chögyam Trungpa's Shambala group is one example, and the Friends_of_the_Western_Buddhist_Order founded by Sangharakshita is another. Many forms of Zen, Pure Land, Indian Vipassana and Tibetan Buddhism are popular in the West
