Leaders of Buddhist organizations have held regular meetings since the early 1980's, then referred to as the 'intersangha' and later known as the 'mahasangha' after a set of more clearly defined rules of cooperation was developed. With time that structure became inadequate and a more institutionalized one was needed. It was when Polish Buddhist Union was founded.
The Union is an official inter-church alliance registered by the Religions Department of the Office of the Council of Ministers on May 9, 1995.
The members of the Union:
- Związek Buddyjski Tradycji Karma Kamtzang - representing Karma Kagju Tibetan Buddhism traditions
- Szkoła Zen Kwan Um - representing Korean Buddhism traditions
- Związek Buddyjski Khordong - representing TibetanBuddhism traditions
