Misson of Rissho Kosei-kai Buddhist Organization

Our purpose is to provide a place for spiritual growth through the study and practice of Buddhist principles. We seek to support each other and our community in the development of awareness, compassion and peace.

Our goal is to have a teaching center where we can join with others to discover and celebrate spiritual growth. We endeavor to share our experiences with others to build a bond of integrity and strength within our community. A positive approach to learning that can be taken out into the world. Because we are all connected, we practice responsibility in all aspects of our lives. When you cast a stone into the water, the ripples extend far beyond the original action.

So, the effects of our actions often reach further than we realize. Through increased awareness and learning how to live in the moment, we have the chance to gain wisdom and compassion for ourselves and others. The path of Buddhism is inclusive and available to all.
