Buddhist group to have booth at Avo Fest
Last updated 4/5/2007 at Noon
The Fallbrook District of Soka Gakkai International-USA will have a booth at the Fallbrook Avocado Festival to introduce the organization and answer questions.
SGI is an American Buddhist movement that promotes peace and individual happiness based on the philosophy and practice of the Nichiren school of Mahayana Buddhism tracing its roots to the teachings of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni.
The core philosophy is expressed in the concept of human revolution, a process of inner transformation that centers on the idea that the causes we make through our thoughts, words and actions have influence that extends beyond their immediate context to affect the vast and complex web of life. SGI activities are driven by what is viewed as an inseparable link between individual happiness and the peace and prosperity of the whole world. These teachings place the highest emphasis on the sanctity of life.
SGI-USA now extends to 190 countries and territories. The Fallbrook District meets several times a month. Please visit us at the SGI booth at the Avocado Festival, or call (760) 591-9738 or visit http://www.sgi-usa.org for more information.
