Soka Gakkai International of Hong Kong (HKSGI), established on 28 January, 1961, is a Buddhist organisation for lay believers, based on the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin to promote peace, culture, education and to pray for the happiness of humanity and world peace. Through various discussion meetings, cultural and education exchanges and publications, we study Buddhism with the members, encourage one another and apply the Buddhist teachings in our daily lives.

Soka Gakkai International (SGI) was established in Guam on 26 January 1975 and comprises of 90 affiliated members’ organisations with members in 192 countries and territories. Members of the SGI (including members of Hong Kong) based their practice on the life philosophy of the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin to arrive at a common understanding that the happiness of individuals and the peace and development of the global family of humanity are closely related. The nature and scope of the activities at each affiliated members’ organisation are conducted in accordance with the local cultural and social background. SGI is also one of the non-governmental organisations (NGO) of the United Nations, which focuses on world peace and human rights.

As a result, we highly respect the culture, traditions and legislations of the local community, and encourage our members to become good citizens to contribute to the prosperity of the society. The activities we organise are all fundamentally based on the sanctity of life, whilst negating all acts of violence such as wars. For the sake of the happiness of humanity, the prosperity and peace of the world, we support the spirit of the United Nations’ Charter and are committed to assist the United Nations in maintaining world peace.
