What is Soka Gakkai International of Hong Kong ?

Soka Gakkai International of Hong Kong (HKSGI) is a Buddhist association that promotes peace, culture and education basing on Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism.
Nichiren Daishonin discovered that the Lotus Sutra reveals the basic principle which affirms that all people are capable of attaining enlightenment. By chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo (the title phrase of Lotus Sutra or daimoku) and exerting oneself in faith, practice and study [of Buddhist teachings] is the practice for the people in the Latter Day of the Law. Nichiren taught that attaining enlightenment is not unreachable. Also, “attaining Buddhahood” does not happen after one’s passing. In this everyday life, people could establish happiness that nothing can destroy and manifest the Buddha nature in their own lives through practicing for oneself and others. Every individual is able to fully exert their capabilities and live a substantial life.
“Faith, practice and study” are the basics in applying Nichiren Buddhism. Faith is the faith towards the true object of worship, the Gohonzon. Practice is the action or concrete way of actualizing faith, which consist of two parts: practice for ourselves and practice for others. Practice for ourselves is primarily the chanting of Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. Practice for others consists of conducting Buddhist dialogues with others, encouraging faith and practice. Study is the study of Buddhist teachings. All three basics of “faith, practice and study” are crucially important. “Faith” is like the engine of a car, “practice” is like the wheels, and “study” is the steering wheel.
By exerting oneself in faith, practice and study, people could establish a happy life-state that nothing can destroy . SGI President Daisaku Ikeda, said, “When we perceive that our life is one with the Mystic Law, we experience the eternity of life and boundless energy wells forth. Nothing can destroy this. No matter what happens, we enjoy a state of complete freedom. That is the life-state of Buddhahood.”
