America's First Freedom

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.

We encourage you to view the film, Our Shared Humanity: An Introduction to the SGI Buddhist Movement a 20-minute film that answers the questions:

> What is the SGI?
> What are the SGI's philosophical underpinnings?
> Who are its members and what do they do?
