From April 27-28, SGI-Mexico men's group members from 11 cities across the country gathered for a training course at the SGI-Mexico Veracruz Center, which was opened in December 2012.

At the meeting, experiences relating the transformative impact of Buddhist practice relating to the themes of work, relationships and health were shared. A member from Mexico City recounted that through putting Buddhist principles into action in his workplace he was able to overcome his financial problems and gain the trust of the people he works with.

SGI-Mexico General Director Roberto Rios also encouraged participants to support others in their daily efforts to transform any problem or hardship.
