Buddhism is a largely de-centralised religion, with ancient communities throughout Asia and more modern practitioners in Australia and across the world.

Thankfully Buddhism is prevalent on the internet. If it wasn't for the internet, I wouldn't know as much about Buddhism as I do, I probably wouldn't even barely know of it's existence at all. I live in a primarily conservative Christian area, so finding information on Buddhism in other places is few and far between.
