Exchanges & Dialogue

Key Elements of Soka Education

“By interacting with others from diverse backgrounds and experiences, one can see oneself in a new light. The profound significance of dialogue lies in the effort to encompass differences. Can we expand the common ground of humanity while sharing different values with others, through genuine dialogue? Can we bring the world together and elevate humanity with the power of dialogue? These are the critical challenges.” (From Taiwa no Bunmei/Toward a Civilization of Dialogue)
