About the Book

The Soka Gakkai Dictionary of Buddhism contains over 2700 entries. While it is designed primarily for use with the Soka Gakkai's translations of Nichiren Daishonin’s works, the Dictionary contains a wealth of terms found in all other traditions of Buddhism. Definitions are given for technical terms, historical figures, doctrinal texts, institutions, and place names. The entries provide complete cross-references so that readers may know and further pursue meanings of term equivalents as rendered in other ways or languages.

Ten appendices provide maps and world lists that enable the reader to find terms in English, Pali, Sanskrit, Chinese, or Japanese. Like all Buddhist masters, Nichiren presented his particular message in the wider context of other Buddhist teachings and practices. As such, the Dictionary provides essential knowledge not only for students of Nichiren Buddhism, but for anyone reading Buddhist texts.
