The Soka Gakkai International (SGI)-USA is a socially engaged Buddhist community rooted in the life affirming philosophy of the Nichiren school of Mahayana Buddhism. Our community has been a vibrant part of the Atlanta religious landscape since 1969, and is widely known for its diversity and commitment to peace and human rights.
In April 2013 we broke ground on our new permanent home at the corner of 17th and Village Streets in the Atlantic Station section of Midtown Atlanta. Our eco-conscious building will include an exhibit space, a 235-seat main hall, additional meeting rooms and a bookstore. We expect it to open in early 2014.
