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. To learn more about the basics of Buddhism.
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.
encourage you to view a 20-minute film titled, Our Shared Humanity: An Introduction to the SGI Buddhist Movement to help answer the questions:
is the SGI?
What are the SGI's philosophical underpinnings?
Who are its members and what do they do?
