SGI Leaders' Training Courses in Ecuador

GuayaquilSome 100 members attend the leaders' meeting in Guayaquil

On October 6 and 7, SGI-Ecuador held leaders' training meetings in the two largest cities of Quito and Guayaquil. The meetings served as opportunities for members to deepen their understanding of Buddhist concepts, share experiences in faith, and engage in discussion about how to apply Buddhism in their daily lives. In both cities, participants studied and discussed Nichiren’s writing "Many in Body, One in Mind," which explains that the Buddhist concept of unity has at its heart a respect for the diverse and unique qualities of each individual. New SGI members who had recently embarked on their Buddhist practice were also introduced at the gatherings.
