The SGI-USA continues to closely monitor CDC and local government guidelines amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and is eager to reopen Buddhist centers across the country when deemed safe. In the meantime, in-person activities are still on hold, but we will keep you informed of updates and developments. Currently, the SGI-USA bookstores at centers in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu, Chicago, Denver, New York and Washington, D.C., are open to individuals by appointment only (with limited hours of operation). Opening additional bookstores is being discussed.

Contact your local leader or territory office for details on setting up an appointment.
