Since the new “Introduction to Soka Gakkai Nichiren Buddhism” was posted on March 17 at www.worldtribune.org, the feature has reached nearly 100,000 people.

The clear and concise presentation focuses on foundational elements of Buddhist practice, using slides and attractive imagery. The feature was developed for members to share Buddhism easily with friends via social media as well as incorporate into the intro-to-Buddhism meetings taking place weekly at SGI-USA centers and meeting homes across the country.

SGI President Ikeda writes in his New Year’s message: “Kosen-rufu is the expansion of friendship, the expansion of empathy and trust. It is making steady efforts to engage in courageous and sincere dialogue in our homes, workplaces, communities and the world at large, thereby forging and expanding warm human ties and uniting people’s hearts” (Jan. 1 World Tribune, p. 3).
