Buddhism is a very tiny religion in Bulgaria, with about a thousand Buddhists in Bulgaria. Mahayana Buddhism alongside with Ancestor Worship is the traditional faith of Vietnamese community (the population of this community, mostly from North Vietnam in Bulgaria's declined from over tens of thousands before 1990 to around 1,000 now) and some of Chinese descents. Most of them visit the pagodas or temples 2 or 3 times a year but they always worship before the Ancestor altar at home every day.

A small number of native Bulgarians are converts to Theravada and Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism.
