The article deals with the problem of the economic potential of Buddhist culture. The relevance of the topic is due to the interest in the problems of the philosophical, ethical and axiological underpinning of economic development of the society. It is witnessed by the increasing amount of researches in this field, both in national and foreign science. This attention to the socio-philosophical analysis of the economy in the context of socio-cultural, religious traditions is conditioned by not only the economic but also civilization, demographic, social and political trends of development.
