Buddhism in Daily Life

More valuable than treasures in a storehouse are the treasures of the body, and the treasures of the heart are the most valuable of all. From the time you read this letter on, strive to accumulate the treasures of the heart!

From The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin "The Three Kinds of Treasure"

SGI is active as an NGO promoting peace, culture and education, in keeping with the Buddhist tenet of respect for the sanctity of life. SGI members work in ways appropriate to local culture to promote human rights and sustainable development, raising awareness and forging links at the grass-roots level to foster a culture of peace. SGI is a firm supporter of the United Nations, with liaison offices in both New York and Geneva.
A range of activities to promote peace and education is carried out by SGI as an organization at the local, national and international levels. However, maybe the most dramatic evidence of SGI's social engagement is to be found in the activities of individual members who contribute in many ways to the betterment of their communities, families and workplaces.
