To all members of SGI Australia and visitors to SGI centres,
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SGI Australia continues to exercise caution regarding the holding of face-to-face activities and the opening of our centres. On a state-by-state basis, we regularly review government regulations and based on these, introduce changes to state activity guidelines. As the conditions of the pandemic continue to change, please reach out to your local leaders to understand what activity guidelines are current for your state. Online meetings will continue to be encouraged, for national-level events and for other activities where face-to-face meetings are not feasible.
Please see below link to a video message where Chris has shared some thoughts on Buddhist perspectives of the COVID pandemic, drawing on insights from President Ikeda’s 2021 Peace Proposal. The direct link to the video is: https://youtu.be/6jI7cJrRYpw
We hope this provides some perspective, and encouragement, on how we can all determine to keep confidently making valuable causes in the face of the current circumstances.
