History of Soka Gakkai International

Broadening the Vision

Toda's successor, Daisaku Ikeda, had also experienced the horrors of war as a youth and was determined to dedicate his life to building peace. He was 32 when he became president of the Soka Gakkai in 1960. Under Ikeda's leadership, the organization continued to grow and broaden its focus.

In 1975, in response to the needs of an increasingly international membership, the Soka Gakkai International (SGI) was founded.

Today it is a worldwide network with 82 registered constituent organizations and members in 190 countries and territories, sharing a common vision of a better world. SGI's Buddhist philosophy underpins a movement promoting peace, culture and education.
