Countries and territories where there are SGI members
The entire list of 192 countries and territories in which there are practicing members, is not released publicly. This is because certain countries on this list, for religious, social or political reasons, may be sensitive to having us publicly announce that there are Buddhists practicing in their borders. However we maintain a list of 90 registered constituent SGI organizations.
