We are a group of lay practitioners of Nichiren Buddhism living in the West Midlands – Birmingham, Coventry, the Black Country, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and nearby areas.
As Nichiren Buddhists we are also members of the Soka Gakkai International UK (SGI-UK), an organisation devoted to the values of peace, culture and eduction in communities through the world. We actively engage with our communities to raise awareness of our practice and to promote these values within our own families, friends, community and society as a whole.
Currently, there are more than 12 million members in 192 countries and territories worldwide. For SGI members, Buddhism is a practical philosophy of individual empowerment and inner transformation that enables people to develop themselves and take responsibility for their lives.
As lay believers, “engaged Buddhists”, and SGI members, we strive everyday to develop the ability to create value in every situation and live our lives to our fullest potential.
