Recovery of the Heart - A Buddhist Approach to Disaster Resilience

During the 2019 World Bosai Forum held in Sendai, Japan, a Soka Gakkai representative spoke about Soka Gakkai’s relief and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the March 11, 2011, Great East Japan Earthquake. Believing that music and the arts can provide relief and impart hope, Soka Gakkai has dispatched its choruses and instrumental groups to stricken areas. To date, they have held more than 140 concerts with over 60,000 people in attendance.
