Buddhist prison outreach is a relatively recent development in the United States and elsewhere, and has yet to be chronicled satisfactorily. This article traces the history of Buddhist prison outreach in the United States from its earliest indications in the 1960s to the present day. The mechanics of Buddhist prison outreach are also examined. The intent is to provide an adequate understanding of this form of outreach and a basis for further research in this area.
