A General Model of Buddhism-Based Management

Hideki Takei


Buddhism-based management has been popular among businesspersons.  However, many studies about the business seemed subjective as authors used their values and interpretations of Buddhism (Weerasinghe, Thisera, and Kumara, 2014; Ashtankar, 2015; Shakya, 2017).  We agree with Abe's (2007) conclusion that the absence of a generally accepted Buddhism-based business model is the leading cause. We need a general model.  This paper suggests a generally accepted Buddhism-based business model by integrating all aspects of Buddhism-based business from published studies and the Buddha's original teachings.  We will then use a Japanese Buddhism-based company, Warehouse TERRADA Co, to verify this model.
