What we're about

During this meetup, we will explore Nichiren Buddhism, and how you can apply Buddhist principles to solving everyday issues and obstacles. There will be a brief "Daimoku and Gongyo" or chanting session, but primarily dialogue on how peace and faith can transform our lives.

We are part of SGI, Soka Gakkai (Value-Creating Society) International, a world-wide Buddhist organization with 12 million members in 190 countries and territories. We take pride in our diversity, and ability to empower and unite individuals regardless of social standing, racial and ethnic differences. The organization is founded on Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism that focuses on the individual's ability to become Buddha's, or enlightened individuals with the qualities of courage, compassion, wisdom, and life force. The motivating force of joining this group is a desire that everyone carries- our right to be absolutely unconditionaly happy :)
