Reiyukai offers lay people the opportunity to walk in Buddha’s footsteps in their daily lives thus attributing a wider and more generous meaning to their very existences. It teaches the way towards a deep and essential happiness based on spiritual friendship and compassion for all beings.
It encourages each and everyone to transform themselves, to anchor their confidence in their capacity for improvement and enlightenment as well as their ability to free themselves from any conditioning, thus transforming their reality.

Reiyukai aims at contributing actively to progress and social harmony, which will eventually lead to a more peaceful world.
