Abstract: In a globalized world, the movement of goods, services, people and ideas across national and cultural boundaries has become more rapid. It is not only seen from the increasing economic, cultural, and political exchanges among different countries and regions, but also the growing presence of religious philanthropy on the global stage. This research note aims to further explore this little-studied topic by using a Taiwanese Buddhist organization, namely Buddha's Light Mountain (BLM) (佛光山 or Fo Guang Shan), as an example. The purpose of this note is to outline how BLM initiated relief activities in Kumamoto after it was struck by a powerful earthquake in 2016, based on official records and media reports.
