I am sure the Chinese brought Buddhism with them when they went there. It just never gained any traction with the Filipinos.

Yes, it just never took hold with most Filipinos, from what I see whenever in the Philippines, it is mostly Chinese who practice it.

I thought this was an interesting subject, so I did some reading and Buddhism was introduced to the Philippines region around 900-1000 ad. It’s unclear how ingrained it become, but it did spread out a decent amount. However, it seems like the majority of people remained some form of animist. By the 1500’s Buddhism (along with animism) started to decline with the introduction of Islam and Christianity.

The Buddhism in the Philippines historically resembled SE Asian Buddhism and not Chinese Buddhism. We know that from the type of Buddha’s that have been discoved from history. So the old Buddhism must have pretty much been completely wiped out from the 1500’s coming to present day. Modern Buddhism in the Philippines is much closer to Chinese Buddhism and is mostly only adhered to by Chinese.

Hell no! It would be a more peaceful , less violent, and maybe SMARTER country if it did. There are only a sprinkle of Taoist temples here and they are more a tourist attraction. These people are tied to the ROMAN CATHOLIC church that keeps them brain dead and emotional....and violent.

This is similar to how Islam was introduced to China even before Christianity but never took hold.

The phillipines is kept down by the 3 idealogies of papists, the ways of bedoiun, and communism. They need to go back paganism, the ways of majapahit, and/or godless and concentrate on science.
