Living the Lotus

Rissho Kosei-kai is announces a name change of our monthly newsletter "Shan Zai" to "Living the Lotus – Buddhism in Everyday Life", for a more meaningful title that reflects the contents.

We continue striving to practice the teachings of the Lotus Sutra in daily life, to enrich and make our lives more worthwhile, like lotus flowers blooming in a muddy pond.

"Living the Lotus" is published in 14 languages in cooperation with overseas branches. Publication in some languages is irregular, however, and some issues contain only President Niwano’s guidance. We will continue trying to improve the newsletter and would appreciate your continued support and comments.
