History of the Buddhist Council
The Buddhist Council of Victoria came into being in 1996 when representatives of Buddhist traditions joined together in a common cause. The Council acts as a unifying body to represent the many temples, organisations and centres that make up the membership of the Victorian Buddhist Council.
In 2006 the BCV released a document on the history of Buddhism in Victoria. It was written by Dr Shiva Vasi, PhD, and sponsored by the Victorian Multicultural Commission.
