In this inspiring collection of essays, a young religious leader shares the fruits of her personal study of the teachings of her grandfather, Rev. Nikkyo Niwano (1906—99). Rev. Niwano, founder of the international Buddhist organization Rissho Kosei-kai, was the recipient of the 1979 Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
A warm and intimate account, The Buddha in Everyone's Heart chronicles Kosho Niwano's continuing work to make knowledge of her grandfather's lifelong vocation available to everyone. Bear witness with Kosho Niwano to Founder Niwano's lifelong dedication to the liberation from suffering of all people through the teachings of the Lotus Sutra.
Written with familial love and a sincere aspiration to follow in his footsteps, these pages are rich with stories that reveal the unifying truth of the One Dharma, a truth that the founder profoundly understood and passionately lived during his time on earth and then left behind for all to follow.
