With a nationwide shortage of essential medical supplies in the fight
against COVID-19, the SGI-USA has donated 10,000 masks to U.S.
hospitals in dire need. In addition to these material provisions, SGI-USA
General Director Adin Strauss has called on all SGI-USA members to
deepen their bodhisattva vow in bringing about lasting change amid
the tumultuous climate. “It is through faith—chanting Nam-myoho-renge-
kyo and introducing Buddhism to 6,000 new youth this year—that we will change the tide in our country,” Mr. Strauss said.
