Buddhism has had rocky times in communist Vietnam, but now the state-sanctioned church is flexing its muscles at the expense of Catholics.

But it’s very different in London, where Cambodian Buddhists use a two-bedroom flat as their temple and community center. They now have no place to gather, after a recent fire.

In India, the government set up a Buddhist center in Kashmir and cited the religion’s influence on Mahatma Gandhi, and value as an antidote to the extremism that plagues the region.

And in gratuitous celebrity news, Orlando Bloom’s squeeze Miranda Kerr discusses the couple’s mutual love of Buddhism.
