You are invited to join Meadville Lombard in welcoming Rev. Kosho Niwano to the school on Wednesday, April 24.
Rev. Kosho is president-designate of Rissho Kosei-kai, which now has over 2 million member households worldwide. She is the mother of four children and recently published the book, The Buddha in Everyone's Heart; Seeking the World of the Lotus Sutra.
In this inspiring collection of reminiscences, a young religious leader shares the fruits of her personal study of the teachings of Rev. Nikkyo Niwano (1906-99), her grandfather and the founder of the international lay Buddhist organization Rissho Kosei-kai. The teachings of Rev. Nikkyo Niwano are still relevant in our turbulent times. Rev. Kosho bears witness to her grandfather's lifelong dedication to the liberation from suffering for all people through the teachings of the Lotus Sutra, one of the most important Mahayana Buddhist scriptures.
Rev. Kosho will discuss her book on Wednesday, April 24 at 5:30 PM. Following the talk, Rev. Kosho will conduct a book signing and Meadville Lombard will host a reception. All are welcome!
