This book examines the history of Soka Gakkai International, a Japanese movement based on the beliefs and teachings of the 13th-century Buddhist Nichiren Daishonin, as it relates to Welsh membership—a group that has grown from a tiny group to hundreds of member through out Wales and the borders in the past 30 years.

Drawing on original research gleaned from the members themselves, the research elicits facets of their faith, practices, and study, as well as their testimonies to the success of such beliefs and practices in their daily lives.

The book combines the twin goals of academic analysis of the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin in general with the warmth of its expression in the lives of its adherents in Wales.
