Develop as bodhisattvas and realise Shakyamuni Buddha's message: all beings are on this Path and to bring peace to our families, communities, countries, and to the world.


The organisation was founded by Nikkyo Niwano and Myoko Naganuma in 1938, guided by the teachings of the Lotus Sutra and the spirit of Shakyamuni Buddha.

IRD Activities

  • Cooperation with Religious and Secular Organizations

    ALL of Rissho Kosei-kai's activities are based on the teachings in its basic scripture, the Lotus Sutra: Truth is universal and all religions are manifestations of that truth, all life springs from the same source, and thus all people are related and belong to one family. The organization's dedication to dialogue and cooperation with other religious and nonreligious organizations is a natural corollary of the teachings. The core themes evolve around interreligious dialogue, protection of human rights, and conflict resolution. That is why, ever since its founding, Rissho Kosei-kai has sought to cooperate with other religions and work with the United Nations, the International Association for Religious Freedom, the World Conference of Religions for Peace, the Asian Conference of Religions for Peace, and a variety of other nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).
