World Buddhist Federation (Shìjiè Fójiào liánhé huì 世界佛教聯合會)
- First session: July 23 - August 11, 1923; Second Session: July 13 - 15, 1924
- Location: Dàlín Temple 大林寺 on Lúshān 廬山
Two summer lecture series, spearheaded by Tàixū 太虛 and including international participants. The first session was organized as a lecture series by Yán Shǎofú 嚴少孚 and Tàixū. According to Holmes Welch, the title of this organization was a spontaneous decision on Yán's part, and the audience was about 100 people.
The presence of a Japanese delegation at the second meeting was due primarily to the efforts of Xiǎnyìn 顯蔭, who was living in Japan at the time.
The success of the first two meetings in China led, in 1925, to the first East Asian Buddhist Conference 東亞佛教大會, which took place in Japan.
