Won Buddhism UN & Interfaith Office envisions a world where all individuals and communities live in peace and harmony based on the Buddhist principles of interdependency and interconnectedness. We are inspired by the example of Master Sotaesan, the founder of Won Buddhism, who was also a champion of gender equality, international peace and global cooperation.
