SGI-BALI

A BUDDHIST  ASSOCIATION  FOR PEACE, CULTURE AND EDUCATION

 
 

On March 20, 2008, Soka Gakkai Indonesia (SGI-Indonesia) members gathered in Denpasar, the capital of Bali Province, to celebrate the establishment of a new chapter in Bali, SGI-Indonesia's 30th chapter. Representatives from the country's capital Jakarta, as well as eight other countries also attended. Among the guests present were the provincial government officials and representatives of the Indonesian National Youth Council.


Soka Gakkai bases itself on the teaching and practice established by Nichiren Daishonin, a Buddhist priest and philosopher living in thirteenth century Japan. Nichiren revealed a direct means for all people to become happy through the practice of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo (the title of the Lotus Sutra, a teaching expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha of India). It is a universally accessible practice that activates the inherent Buddha nature or creative life-force existing in all life, and enables each person to positively transform their life and relationships.


If you are visiting Bali, please join us and we will welcome you to the ‘Island of the Gods’.

Welcome to Bali

SGI-Bali is one of the 192 centres throughout the world which together make up the SGI (Soka Gakkai International). Soka Gakkai, literally translates as “value creation society”. Members of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI) throughout the world strive to reveal the life state of Buddhahood or enlightenment and enact the creative and compassionate potential in life. In so doing, we challenge ourselves to create thriving and peaceful families, work places and communities. The ultimate goal is, through the process of inner reformation (often referred to as human revolution), to create peace and spiritual prosperity in society. This is usually referred to by the Japanese term kosen-rufu.
