We are the members of
the SGI-USA (Soka Gakkai International-USA) in the Richmond Tri-Cities
area of central Virginia. Members of the SGI-USA practice the Buddhism
of Nichiren Daishonin for personal happiness and for development
of a peaceful society.
Our goals are to contribute to peace, culture,
and education based on the philosophy and ideals of Nichiren’s
Buddhism. One central aim of SGI-USA activities is to promote humanistic
dialogue based on Buddhist principles.
There are approximately 200 members of SGI-USA in the
greater Richmond area including Chesterfield, Henrico, Richmond,
Petersburg, Hopewell, and Colonial Heights. We generally meet in
individual's homes since we do not yet have a SGI community center;
however, we do hold a monthly World Peace Gongyo meeting on the
first Sunday of each month in a public location. Please see the Events Calendar for more details.
