A relatively young religion, Buddhism arose in Northern India, following the life of Siddhartha Gautama, or simply, Buddha. The Buddha was an ascetic teacher, who spoke of the Middle Way, throughout India.
— In-game description

The Buddhist religion is a transtheistic faith based primarily in northern India. This article documents the paradigms associated with the religion. All values are for Omen.png+100% Omen Power.

As a transtheistic religion, Buddhist countries do not worship deities, but instead honour and focus on particular paradigms of their religion. Therefore Buddhist countries cannot worship deities of other religions in their pantheon, and likewise, most Buddhist paradigms cannot be worshipped by non-Buddhist countries in their pantheon even if their Holy Site.png holy sites are controlled or a significant part of the population is Buddhist, with the exception of the deified Buddhist founder and teacher Siddhartha.
