Abstract Although generally considered a tolerant or even an ultra-pacifistic religion, contemporary Buddhism is far from being free from internal political-religious tensions. The present article sketches three conflicts: the first is located within the Kagyüpaline where two sub-currents argue about the legitimacy of the spiritual leader of the school; the second refers to the controversy over Dorje Shugden, a protective deity whose veneration was declared dangerous by the Dalai Lama and other leaders of the Guelugpa-school in opposition to the defenders of this religious practice; the third one is the dispute over Soka Gakkai whose status as a modern representative of Nichiren Buddhism is questioned by other Japanese Buddhist groups. After having laid out the basic characteristics of the three conflicts the article deals with their impact on contemporary Brazilian Buddhism.
