Buddhism was introduced to the U.S.A. by the Asian immigrants in the 19th century. There is no reliable data on the number of Buddhists in the United States but today it is estimated to be a few millions. 1.25% of the total U.S. population is identified as Buddhist followers. Prof.Dana Eck of the Harvard University talks about the presence of three types of Buddhists such as , Buddhists, Nightstand Buddhists and Strongly influenced Buddhists and they amount to be around thirty millions.

Street Meditation GIA HIẾU Đọc được trên facebook của Ayya Yeshe, Sư cô viết: “….Peaceful sitting Meditation in the midst of The Christmas rush, just to show that another way is possible…”( Ngồi Thiền an tịnh trên đường phố, giữa mùa giáng sinh với nhiều hối hả, vội vàng là một cách để cho biết rằng vẫn có thể làm được…) Tôi thật sự cảm kích cái nhìn của một người tu sĩ, và là một Sư Cô người Úc, tu theo truyền thống Phật Giáo Mật Tông Tây Tạng, được biết Ayya Yeshe đã từng thực hiện những thời tu tập trên đường phố bận rộn tại New-York City và một vài nơi khác trên thế giới.
