A new selection of Daisaku Ikeda’s writings on education—many previously published under the title Soka Education—comes from some five decades of works by the Buddhist philosopher and founder of the Soka schools system. From educational proposals and university lectures to personal essays, these writings not only delve into the meaning of soka (value-creating) education but offer a hopeful vision of the power of education to bring happiness to the individual and peace to the world. The Light of Learning—Selected Writings on Education is available at bookstore.sgi-usa.org. Purchase a hard copy for $18.95 or e-book for $11.99.
