A Buddhist Approach to Peace

By Nikkyo Niwano (1906–1999) Founder of Rissho Kosei-kai

The author consistently acted on the Lotus Sutra principle that the problems of people anywhere are the problems of all and that happiness cannot be realised for one person until it is realised for all. As he made clear, this principle can be employed by anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, to enable people to work together effectively for the great cause of peace in our lifetime. A tireless worker for world peace, the author was the recipient of the 1979 Templeton Foundation Prize for Progress in Religion, the Knight Commander with the Silver Star of the Order of St. Gregory the Great from the Vatican, and Interfaith Medallion from the International Council of Christians and Jews, and served as Honorary Chairman of Religions for Peace (RfP) and President of the International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF). It is his firm conviction that interreligious cooperation, encouraging people of different faiths to work together, is the key to achieving lasting peace.
