The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra Vol. 1
The Lotus Sutra, Shakyamuni Buddha’s highest teaching, explains that all people – regardless of gender, social status or education – can uncover the buddha nature they inherently possess. Based on this empowering and compassionate sutra, Nichiren Daishonin revealed the supreme practice for the modern world.
Now, in clear, down-to-earth terms, SGI President Ikeda and Soka Gakkai study department leaders Katsuji Saito, Takanori Endo and Haruo Suda explore the profound meaning of the Lotus Sutra’s twenty-eight chapters. Basing themselves on Nichiren Daishonin’s lectures on the Lotus Sutra, the Record of The Orally Transmitted Teachings, they explain the concepts that form the foundation of SGI members’ buddhist practice. Through their discussions, the ancient text of the Lotus Sutra comes alive, brimming with profound significance and practical advice for living in today’s world.
