Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra #1 May10-13

What is the focus of this conference?

The Lotus Sutra is the basis of Nichiren Buddhism. SGI President Ikeda says: "The Lotus Sutra teaches of the great hidden treasure of the heart, as vast as the universe itself, which dispels any feelings of powerlessness" (The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, vol. 1, p. 14).
The Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra Conference" will delve into the life-affirming principles upon which Nichiren Buddhism is founded. Learn about the three assemblies in two places, causes and conditions, the seven key parables of the Lotus Sutra, America’s connection to the Lotus Sutra, and the meanings of "this is what I heard” and “teacher of the Law."

The conference focuses on volumes 1 and 2 of the Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra dialogue series, which participants are encouraged to bring with them. Many sessions will include a question-and-answer corner. Participants will also enjoy a night of Buddhist Jeopardy, where they can test their knowledge of Buddhism and more!

*The two Wisdom of the Lotus Sutra conferences (#1 and #2) for 2013 will cover the same material and content.
