969/968, the buddhisma, is a 19-limit superparticular comma of about 1.79 cents. It is the amount by which a stack consisting of 22/17 and 22/19 falls short of 3/2. By tempering it out is defined the buddhismic temperament, which enables the buddhismic chords.


The name buddhisma was named by Xenllium in 2023. It refers to the 969 Movement, which is a Buddhist nationalist movement opposed to what they see as Islam's expansion in predominantly-Buddhist Myanmar. The three digits of 969 "symbolize the virtues of the Buddha, Buddhist practices and the Buddhist community". The first 9 stands for the nine special attributes of the Buddha and the 6 for the six special attributes of his Dharma, or Buddhist Teachings, and the last 9 represents the nine special attributes of Buddhist Sangha (monastic community). Those special attributes are the Three Jewels of the Buddha.
