Buddhism is humanistic in many ways and in a variety of the senses that the term "humanism" has acquired. The Buddha as a social reformer sought to establish human value, dignity, equal rights, freedom, justice and peace. There is no doubt that Buddhism has a very significant contribution to UNESCO's effort in evolving Universal Ethics or a Common Framework for Ethics of the Twenty-first Century.
