The economic processes taking place in the society create the conditions for human development as well as the conditions for the development of an immoral lifestyle, completely changing the scale of his or her spiritual values. In our opinion, this is an inevitable consequence of transformation of the model of social and economic development. However, this is not the only reason for praising individualism and selfish lifestyles. The problem seems to be rooted in a lack of spiritual education. With reference to this problem, it is interesting to address to Buddhism as a philosophical and religious system, including the system of moral values that can help solve the vital problems of a person in the modern world. Modern Buddhism differs significantly from its ancient counterpart; however, many of its positive factors, especially moral principles, remain significant, in particular, those that cultivate kindness in people encouraging them to strive for the highest humanistic values, help to maintain and develop moral values and a highly moral lifestyle based on selfless love for humanity. Humanism reveals its inner moral nature assuming respect for the individual. Buddhist culture has a special ability to unite a person internally and provide spiritual integrity. Buddhism became a religion that deeply influenced the spiritual life of many Eurasian peoples. It is easy to see that there are many common issues between Buddhist ethics and national ethical standards. It is one of the powerful factors that have determined the integration of religions with the traditional beliefs.
