Lay Buddhism is a religious faction based on a version of Buddhism that was once popular in Taiwan. The major difference between lay Buddhism and orthodox Buddhism is that its sanctuaries are usually administered by people who are not monks nor nuns, but are vegetarians. Lay Buddhism also blends elements of Taoism and Confucianism.
