Cultural Activities

The SGI-USA is engaged in a variety of cultural activities as a means of nurturing understanding and respect between different people while promoting the spirit of coexistence between nations and traditions.

These activities are carried out in the confidence that culture is capable of linking the hearts of people throughout the world by bringing richness and joy to the spirit.  About the importance of culture, SGI President Daisaku Ikeda has said: “The victory of culture is a victory for peace.  A true victory for peace can never be obtained by guns.  The victory of culture is the only means by which we can achieve an indestructible victory for peace.  It is the only real way.”
