Raising Up Bodhisattvas in the Modern Ages

By George A. Mullins

The driving force behind Rissho Kosei-kai’s amazing growth and commitment to interfaith dialogue and peace initiatives is Nikkyo Niwano’s devotion to the Lotus Sutra and the Bodhisattva Ideal. These instilled in him a great compassion for humankind that transcended nationality, race and religion.
