About BMSM

In 1961, Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda, the abbot of the Buddhist Maha Vihara forsee the need to establish an organization to propagate the message of the Buddha to the masses. Backed by a group of fervent Buddhists, the Buddhist Missionary Society was consequently registered on 3 April 1962 entrusted to spread the dhamma.

Among others, the objectives of BMSM are to propagate and promote the teaching of the Buddha; to print Buddhist literatures and organize religious lectures; to render spiritual assistance and acquire immovable property for the use of the Society for achieving its aims and objectives.

In 1996, following an amendment to its Constitution, the Society adopted its new name of “Buddhist Missionary Society Malaysia” (BMSM), thus joining the ranks of national Buddhist organizations.

To date BMSM has more than 10,000 members throughout the country compared to 27 members when it first started.
