BuddhistSpace.com, the world’s first online temple, is dedicated to help Buddhists and non-Buddhists to:
• build free memorial websites to remember departed loved ones with photo albums, audios and videos
• share e-tributes and merits with your own or others' departed loved ones
• track family trees
• lay flowers and light candles in Buddhistspace e-memorials
• discuss the importance of living a purposeful life before saying goodbye to death
According to Buddha, by appreciating the impermanence of life, we learn to live our life to the fullest. Buddha’s message is clear. We have to go through the stages of birth, old age, sickness and death. Either we live a holy life as a monk or a lay person’s life, every life is precious as ‘to be born a human being is a very rare occurrence’.
Unlike MySpace or Facebook, BuddhistSpace allows us to celebrate the legacy of departed individuals by sharing their life stories in the spirit of Buddhism. Whether you are a Buddhist or non-Buddhist, you are welcome to create simple death obituaries or personal memorial websites in this virtual temple to celebrate the death of those who have done good deeds, avoided evil deeds and purified their minds to make this a world a better place. Regardless of whether you want to customise your memorial to be an exclusive ‘baby online memorial’ or to commomerate a departed Buddhist celebrity you adore, you can build your online memorial website today or contact us to help you with your private online memorial.

Death is no cause for sorrow, but it would be sorrow if one dies without having done something for oneself and for the world.
– Chief Reverend Venerable Dr K. Sri Dhammananda, Food for The Thinking Mind
I just wanted to say 'Thank You'. This website means so much to us. I originally found it when I was sent the site address for Chief Reverend, then created a site for my mum the very same day. Again, just a very big “Thank You” for a job well done!
