SGI members in Central African Republic Meet

SGI members in the Central African Republic meet in Bangui

On January 30, SGI members in the Central African Republic met in Bangui, the country's capital, to commemorate January 26, SGI Day. Located in the heart of Africa, the country's northern part is a treeless savanna, while the southern part contains dense tropical rainforests. The Central African Republic produces cotton, coffee and tobacco and is rich in natural resources such as diamonds and gold. At the meeting, representatives introduced the SGI's history and read a message from SGI President Daisaku Ikeda. Participants resolved to study and apply the life philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism in their lives, with an eternally youthful spirit.
