What is OSGI?

Österreich Soka Gakkai International (OSGI, the SGI of Austria) is part of the worldwide parent organization Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a Buddhist lay organization based on the Nichiren Buddhism with about 12 million members in 192 countries and regions.

OSGI was founded in 1991 as non-profit association for the promotion of peace, culture and education. Since 2001, OSGI is a recognized lay Buddhist order within the Austrian Buddhist Society (ÖBR).

For SGI members, Buddhism is a practical philosophy of individual empowerment and inner transformation that enables people to develop themselves and take responsibility for their lives.

As lay believers and "engaged Buddhists," SGI members strive in their everyday lives to develop the ability to live with confidence, to create value in any circumstances and to contribute to the well-being of friends, family and community. The promotion of peace, culture and education is central to SGI's activities.
