SGI-Europe Holds Summer Study Session in Trets

Summer study session at the SGI-Europe European Center in Trets, southern France

SGI-Europe held a summer study session August 19-24 at the European Center in Trets, southern France. Together with SGI Study Department Chief Katsuji Saito, 172 members from 27 countries studied "The Opening of the Eyes" from Nichiren's writings, based on SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's lecture. Nichiren's treatise brings to light his dauntless spirit of selfless dedication and his refutation of erroneous doctrines that lead practitioners to unhappiness. On August 22 for an audience of 800 members, Mr. Saito lectured on another of Nichiren's writings, "On Attaining Buddhahood in This Lifetime."
