SGI President's Interview with Tricycle Magazine Available Online


The winter 2008 edition of Tricycle, a leading U.S.-based magazine on Buddhism in the West, carries an interview with SGI President Daisaku Ikeda. In the interview Mr. Ikeda addresses a common misperception that SGI's Buddhist practice is based simply on chanting for material benefits; discusses the core concept of "human revolution" and describes the need for Buddhism to develop beyond its historical and cultural settings to "encounter, learn and evolve," while staying true to its essence.
