February Focus 2019


February pays tribute to significant anniversaries: SGI-USA Women’s Day on Feb. 27, as well as the births of Nichiren Daishonin (Feb. 16, 1222), second Soka Gakkai President Josei Toda (Feb. 11, 1900) and SGI Honorary Women’s Leader Kaneko Ikeda (Feb. 27, 1932).

In this commemorative month, members across the country will focus on two major activities:

Commemorative Gongyo Meetings

The women and young women will hold commemorative gongyo meetings to pray for the peace of the land. (Please talk to your local line leaders for more details.)

District Discussion Meetings

Let’s welcome 50,000 members and guests to our February discussion meetings across the country.

How can we accomplish this? It will be through our one-to-one, heart-to-heart dialogues.

As SGI-USA frontline leaders, let’s initiate a great wave of personal encouragement through visiting members at their homes, chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo with them, listening to their challenges and encouraging them, with great conviction, that attending and contributing to their discussion meetings will bring great fortune to their lives.

For the friends we are introducing to Buddhism, the warm and family like atmosphere of the district is one of the best places to begin one’s Buddhist practice and receive the Gohonzon! Let’s welcome many new members to our Soka family this month, fulfilling our great mission as Bodhisattvas of the Earth.
