Spread of Buddhism map world

Buddhism is, perhaps, the only religion in the world which doesn't call itself a religion. Buddhists call it a spiritual tradition, a path, a lifestyle – an insight into the true nature of the world. Over 376 million people around the world practice Buddhism. Prince Siddhartha Gautama in his relentless pursuit of enlightenment attained nirvana in the sixth century BC. He thus became the Buddha (Enlightened One). His tradition and teachings are followed by the Buddhists. Buddhism is different from most other religions in since it is not centered on the relationship between God and human beings. The impermanence and shallowness of human life and the permanence of bliss which comes from enlightenment is at the center of Buddhist beliefs. Connection with the Divine is internal and may be aided by chants, worship, rituals, and temples but the latter are not indispensable. Kindness and the practice of meditation are key Buddhist concepts. The two largest schools of Buddhism are Theravada Buddhism, which is mostly practiced in Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand, and Mahayana Buddhism, which is practiced in, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Tibet, and Mongolia.

Popular Q&A

In a world of Yelp, Google Maps and Foursquare, would a blog that spreads the word about events, offers and business reviews about a small yet active town generate an audience? - Quora

I think it would have a good shot at generating a small audience. Hometown newspapers in small cities still do surprisingly well, and probably will continue to do so for at least a few more years.
If you did a great job - I think it's possible to attract an audience. However, monetizing that audience would be much harder.
