University of Waterloo Soka Gakkai International (UWSGI)
The purpose of the club is to gather University of Waterloo students, staff, faculty, and members of the UWaterloo community at large to better understand Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism with the keen understanding that we live in a diverse environment. The Soka Gakkai is a diverse global community of individuals in 192 countries and territories who practice Nichiren Buddhism. It cherishes the value of peace, culture and education centered on the respect for the dignity of life. We meet weekly to discuss different topics related to student life and being global citizens through the lens of humanistic Buddhism. We also work on projects related to Nichiren Buddhism education and connect with the larger Waterloo community.
