A worldwide community for SGI Members

--TO MY FRIENDS--
At meetings, let's welcome our
fellow members and friends with
wholehearted sincerity and a
warm smile--with "the same respect
[one] would a Buddha."(*)
Let's make lionhearted efforts to
treasure each person.
That is the spirit of the SGI.

(phrase from Chapter 28 of the Lotus Sutra: “You should rise and greet
him from afar, showing him the same respect you would a Buddha.")
