Welcome to SGI-UK
SGI-UK is the UK branch of Soka Gakkai International, a socially engaged Buddhist movement based on the teachings of the 13th century Buddhist teacher Nichiren.
At the heart of the philosophy is a concept known as ‘human revolution’, whereby the inner change sparked by Buddhist practice leads to courage, compassion and wisdom, fostering fulfilled individuals with a wish to contribute to creating a better world.
Throughout the UK there are local discussion meeting groups where people can find out about how to practise and apply Buddhism in their daily lives.
On this site you will find further information about our philosophy and practice as well as Buddhist activities and social projects. Learn more
