SGI Buddhist Activities

Our meetings offer members and guests in their respective communities the opportunity to openly discuss how to apply Buddhist practice and philosophy to the challenges of everyday life. All our meetings are free and open to all. 

Our goal is transform ourselves and our communities. There are groups all over Chicagoland and beyond. Feel free to reach out and we'll connect you with other practitioners in your area.

Shadow on Concrete Wall

"Changing our hearts is not a matter of doing something that will only temporarily lift our mood or make us feel better, without changing our reality. A true change in our heart is more profound; genuine inner change produces actual change in our lives. Deepening our "heart"—our life state—is the true value of our religion of human revolution. When we speak of obtaining benefit through our Buddhist practice, we are ultimately referring to our inner transformation at the deepest level."
