Stories and reflections on the Buddhist approach to life
Daisaku Ikeda writes essays, articles and books on the Buddhist philosophy of Nichiren and the Lotus Sutra to inspire and encourage the members of the SGI around the world. His focus is on making profound Buddhist truths applicable to daily life. Several times a month he meets with SGI and Soka Gakkai members to share his perspectives and encourage them in their efforts to put Buddhism into practice. His focus is often on youth, as he is always concerned with passing on what he has learned. He also meets and corresponds with leading figures to discuss global issues and ways of building a more peaceful world.
