The Eternal Bond of the Oneness of Mentor and Disciple

What is the focus of this conference?

SGI President Ikeda shares: "Mentor and disciple in Buddhism are comrades in a shared struggle, who devote themselves to fulfilling their vow to guide all humanity to happiness." This conference will center on the key Buddhist concept of the oneness of mentor and disciple. How does one internalize and come to understand this relationship? Why is it significant? How do our lives change with the presence of a mentor? These and other questions will be explored throughout the course of this weekend
