Welcome to the Nichiren Buddhist International Center's
homepage. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading
the teachings of Sakyamuni Buddha. Our founder, Nichiren Shonin,
sought to find the true teaching of the Buddha. After much
searching, Nichiren Shonin discovered that the Buddha's
most consummate teachings were preserved in the Lotus Sutra.
Once he found the Lotus Sutra, Nichiren Shonin devoted his
entire life to studying, practicing, and transmitting the
teachings of the Lotus Sutra. Our Nichiren Order strives to
continue in this tradition.
Nichiren Shonin lived and taught in Japan during the 13th
century, where and when there was much strife and insecurity.
Though it seems that we have come a long way to improve our
lives, many of our problems and challenges have not vastly
improved in this modern age. Whether one is in Japan or in
any other part of the world, we are still faced with issues,
personal and not, that limit us from pursuing a life of real
peace and happiness. We believe that the teachings of the
Buddha are still relevant and applicable in helping us achieve
better understanding for ourselves as well as our interactions
with others around us, to ultimately create and maintain a
more harmonious world.
The NBIC is dedicated to achieving these goals by gathering,
teaching, and preserving the Buddha's wisdom, in the
pursuit of truth and righteousness. We aspire to create teaching
materials in Buddhism, disseminate the Buddha's teachings,
and actively engage in our community, to achieve mutual understanding
and sustain goodwill and cooperation between all sentient
beings in our world.
We are wholly dependent on the donations of our supporters.

quest to help all men, wherever they may be, please consider
