Publisher's Summary

Through this novelized history of the Soka Gakkai - one of the most dynamic, diverse, and empowering Buddhist movements in the world today - listeners will discover the organization's goals and achievements even as they find inspiring and practical Buddhist wisdom for living happily and compassionately in today's world. The book recounts the stories of ordinary individuals who faced tremendous odds in transforming their lives through the practice of Nichiren Buddhism and in bringing Buddhism's humanistic teachings to the world. This first volume looks at events that occurred in 1960 when Soka Gakkai was first brought to North and South America from Japan. This inspiring narrative provides listeners with the principles with which they can positively transform their own lives for the better and realize enduring happiness for themselves and others.

Learning about Buddhism, but not about selling it

i am new to Buddhism. I have had my own beliefs for 40+ years until i was told by a dear friend that my beliefs align with Buddhism. i was disappointed to hear in this book more about spreading the religion and that the advice given is similar to God helps those that help themselves. Rather than connecting with the energies, or auras, that exist throughout all living things across the universe.
