74th Anniversary of Founding

Anniversary of Founding

A ceremony was held celebrating the 74th Anniversary of the founding of Rissho Kosei-kai at RKINA.

Rissho Kosei-kai was founded in 1938 on March 5th in Tokyo. On this congratulatory occasion President Nichiko Niwano announced the following:

"With firm determination, sincere intention, and the spirit of "truly liberate people from suffering and make the world a better place."

Today, the members of Rissho Kosei-kai throughout Japan and all over the world reaffirm the idea that our hearts are united in wishing that all living beings will be liberated from suffering and will find real happiness (the Lotus Sutra tells us that we are entrusted with this wish upon being born).

We solemnly pledge to work toward Rissho Kosei-kai's important goal of "cultivating the fields in the hearts and minds of each and every person" and through diligence in our bodhisattva practice, we hope to make even greater strides toward realizing great peace and harmony in the world.
