about

Rissho Kosei-kai is a Buddhist church founded in Tokyo in 1938. In the US, there are branches in New York, Hawaii, Oklahoma, Chicago, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, and elsewhere. In 1979, Rissho Kosei-kai's Founder, Nikkyo Niwano, received the Templeton Award for Progress in Religion. Rissho Kosei-kai practices a form of "engaged Buddhism", which focuses on self-development by service to others. Among the church's activities is the Donate-a-Meal campaign, in which members give up the price of a meal a week to help developing countries and war refugees; the Campaign of Sharing Blankets with Africa; and many other activities of the RKK Peace fund. Also, Rissho Kosei-kai is very active in inter-religious cooperation, helping to found the World Conference of Religions for Peace.
