About

We are a small Abergavenny, South Wales, based Buddhist centre that is part of a Buddhist organisation known as SGI ( Soka Gakkai International Рmeaning value-creating society) a Japanese school of Buddhism established in the 13th century by Nichiren Daishonin. We chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo daily within our own homes. We believe that by chanting and studying Buddhist teachings we can all tap into our infinite innate potential and achieve enlightenment or true wisdom. We believe that everyone can work for inner change through this Buddhist practice to develop courage, compassion and wisdom, developing themselves as fulfilled individuals with a wish to contribute to creating a more peaceful world. One of the wonderful things about SGI Buddhism is that there are no rules, no robes, no guilt. It is purely a practice for you and the effects you make will depend on the causes you create.
