Soka Gakkai Thailand (SGT) recently published a Thai translation of the second volume of The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's dialogue with Soka Gakkai study leaders on the Lotus Sutra. The Thai edition of The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra Vol.1, was published in November 2008. Volume 2 covers chapter three of the Lotus Sutra, "Simile and Parable," to chapter ten, "The Teacher of the Law," pursuant to the original Japanese version (Hokekyo no chie Vol.2, by Daisaku Ikeda, et. al., Seikyo Press, 1996). The discussion sheds light on the humanistic philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism and its relevance in today's world.
