Free Introduction to Buddhism with SGI USA

East Bay Buddhist Center

The meeting includes brief Buddhist chanting and recitation of Lotus Sutra followed by explanation of the philosophy and practice and a chance for questions and dialogue. The founder of Buddhism, Shakyamuni, expressed this law of life in The Lotus Sutra where he revealed that all people, without exception, possess this Buddha nature and are inherently worthy of respect. In the 13th century, a Japanese Buddhist religious reformer named Nichiren identified that the practice of chanting the Lotus Sutra’s title, “Myoho-renge-kyo,” together with the Sanskrit word “Nam,” which means “to devote oneself,” is itself the way to bring forth from within our Buddha nature. The Soka Gakkai International (SGI) is a grass-roots Buddhist organization with 12 million practitioners in 192 countries and territories.
