Hello everyone! We wanted to announce that SGI-USA surpassed our goal of 50,000 discussion meeting attendance to celebrate November 18, with Sensei! Thank you for all of your hard work in making the discussion meetings a great success.
We also wanted to announce that on December 15 and 16, we will hold the first ever online Intro Exams. In 2013, Sensei shared about our Intro Exam movement: “I understand that the SGI-USA members are encouraging one another, saying that helping people begin their practice is not complete until the new members take the study exam. This gives me great joy” (December 6, 2013 World Tribune, p. 8). Also, Nichiren Daishonin says about the important of studying Buddhism, “It is through the use of words and letters that the Buddha saves living beings . . . If one rejects the use of words and letters, how can the Buddha’s work be done?” (WND-2, pp. 6-7)
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to respond to Sensei by having 2 or more members or guests from each district take the intro exam this month? Let’s give Sensei great joy by helping our friends study for and take the exam on Dec 15 or 16 this month, thereby helping many people deepen their understanding of SGI Nichiren Buddhism!
In order for members and guests to take the exam, they will need to pre-register on the SGI-USA portal using their account, or by creating a new account. The link is portal.sgi-usa.org/portal.
