Soka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) is a lay Buddhist organisation that actively promotes peace, culture and education through personal change and social contribution. Rooted in Nichiren’s life-affirming philosophy of humanism, compassion and respect for life, SGM activities are conducted with the shared understanding of the inseparable linkages that exist between individual happiness and the peace and development of the society. Through inner-directed reformation, SGM members hope to contribute to the betterment of their communities and build a society where people of diverse cultures and faiths can live in peace.
Since its inception in 1984, SGM has conducted its activities with the following objectives as its guiding principles:
- To promote good values and morals among the members
- To contribute to the well-being and prosperity of the country
- To foster friendship, family happiness, racial harmony and peace
- To contribute to culture, social welfare and education
Contributing to Society
Every year SGM takes part in the National Day celebrations at both Federal and State levels. SGM members have also performed at the opening ceremonies of international and national games as well other government-sponsored events.
Strengthening our Common Humanity
A society that values culture is a society that values human happiness – Daisaku Ikeda
SGM’s emphasis on cultural activities stems from the belief that through direct interactions with people from different cultures, mutual understanding is developed and our common humanity is strengthened. Cultural activities are an important part of our search for common values. Culture enriches the individual, while at the same time reaches out to bring people together.
Cultivating Noble Values
SGM organizes public lectures at its culture centres. Distinguished speakers from the academia, and the fields of culture and arts deliver these lectures. The topics of these lectures include those on peace, education, leadership and youth.
