His Practice: Soka Gakkai International (SGI )

Stan had a strong chanting practice. His work with SGI allowed him to travel to Japan and teach the practice. He was involved with SGI for 20 years. He kept a lovely altar in his home with his personal Gohonzon.

The Soka Gakkai International (SGI) is a lay Buddhist organization upholding the tradition that originated with Shakyamuni (Gautama Buddha) and developed as it was inherited by India’s Nagarjuna and Vasubandhu, China’s T’ien-t’ai and Miao-lo and Japan’s Dengyo and Nichiren.

The specific Buddhist tradition embraced by the SGI is based on the Mahayana scriptures and the Lotus Sutra in particular. The SGI is engaged in faith practices and activities in society that correspond with the compassionate spirit of the Lotus Sutra in the contemporary world.
