Tradition: Mahayana, Nichiren Buddhism
Affiliation: Soka Gakkai (SGI)

Notes and Events:

Our philosophy is rooted in the concept of “human revolution,” a process of inner transformation through Buddhist practice. It is a process that leads us to develop our character and to act not only for our personal fulfilment but also for the betterment of society.

By chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with confidence in our innate Buddhahood—or highest human potential—we can dispel self-doubt, challenge our problems courageously and reveal our innate wisdom and compassion. Through chanting, studying Buddhist philosophy and taking action daily for the well-being of others, we can establish a state of profound happiness and make each moment of our lives joyful and meaningful while contributing to peace in our families and community.
