Rissho Kosei-kai of the UK (RKUK)

RKUK is the representative body of Rissho Kosei-kai (RK) in the UK, formed as a trust in Oxford in 1994 and registered as a charity in England and Wales (#1072329). Since then, RKUK has continued to grow and share the faith and mission through involvement and engagement with many people here in the UK.

In 2020, RKUK opens its first Buddhist centre (London Centre) in West London in response to the rising social demand and enquiries for RK’s practical Buddhist teachings for today.

The Sangha is growing but still small in number with less than 100 at the present moment. It means RKUK provides a homelike environment for everyone.


Almost all practices of RK are provided in London Centre including sutra recitation, reaching out, Hoza, Dharma study, volunteer practice to service at the centre and O-daimoku practice. Your daily practice at home and in the community will be supported on the Internet and by local meetings with senior members.

You can join in various social engagement practices such as interreligious cooperation and peace activities as a member of RK Europe and RK International as well. We also join local interfaith groups and collaborate with food banks.
