International Buddhist Congregation
Buddha's wisdom changes your life ------
Welcome to the IBC website. The IBC is a Buddhist community offering an
opportunity to study and practice Shakyamuni Buddha's teachings in daily
life. We have Buddhist service in English every Sunday in a friendly atmosphere.
Rissho Kosei-kai was founded in 1938 by Nikkyo
Niwano and Myoko Naganuma. They saw the
need for a Buddhist practice that would combine
traditional teaching with everyday application to
help a modern and expanding world find peace,
harmony, and happiness.
In 1991, Rev. Nichiko Niwano succeeded his father as president.
At both the local community and international evels, we are very active
peace and well-being through altruistic activities and cooperation
organizations. Rissho Kosei-Kai has 1.8 million members and 250 centers

We have faith in the Eternal Buddha Shakyamuni.
Our faith is based on the teachings of Ekayana (One Vehicle) Buddhism which includes core Buddhist
teachings and the wisdom of the Lotus Sutra.
We share the Buddha's teachings (Dharma) in English with people of any nationality,
especially for non-Japanese people living in Japan.
We offer a warm Buddhist community where we can help each other to improve
ourselves and make this
world a more peaceful place to live.
Everyone is welcome regardless of
nationality or faith.
