From June 30 to July 4, SGI-Portugal women's group members held commemorative meetings throughout the nation, celebrating the founding of Soka Gakkai's Women's Division (June 10, 1951). At the meetings, participants shared faith-based experiences and engaged in Buddhist study. A message from SGI President Ikeda to the women of SGI-Europe was also shared, in which he expressed his hope for the members to live true to themselves based on a strong sense of purpose, and to create harmonious relationships in their respective communities.
