New Book Coming Soon

The Books of My Youth by Ikeda Sensei explores some of the world literature he read as a young man that, as he says, helped to form his life’s “spiritual framework.”

Discussing such works as The Divine Comedy, The Eternal City, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Les Misérables, to name a few, Sensei shares about heroes and heroines, revolutionaries and villains. He also writes of poets singing the praises of the human spirit and about philosophers who challenge the status quo, as they illuminate a new way forward. The Books of My Youth illustrates how great literature can inform and bolster our Buddhist practice to bring peace and justice to the world.
This insightful new read will be available soon for $8.95 at bookstore.sgi-usa.org.
