Oceania60: A New Dawn (O60)

Date : Friday, 4 – Sunday, 6 Oct 2024

Oceania60: A New Dawn (O60) is a significant milestone in our SGI Buddhist peace movement, commemorating the 60th anniversary of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda’s visit to the Oceania region. 

The theme “A New Dawn” emphasizes renewal and progress, urging us all to honour President Ikeda’s legacy and stand up as proud successors. From a small group six decades ago, Oceania now hosts over 10,000 SGI members, with SGINZ making up a membership of over 3,600. 

The success of our O60 events will be gauged by the transformative impact on members’ lives, along with our tangible achievements, like the inauguration of the new SGINZ Centre in Wellington – Whare Soka Buddha. 

Overall, O60 signifies a pioneering leap toward a brighter future for the SGI Buddhist peace movement in Aotearoa, New Zealand, driven by faith, personal challenges, and forward-thinking.

Daimoku Chart

By now you will have received your daimoku chart including the goals towards the holding of our O60 celebrations in October. 

With the awareness that ‘the benefit of daimoku is truly vast and immeasurable,’ we hope that you will use it to regularly record the daimoku you contribute towards the success of this event.

The amount you chant is entirely over to you, but if you can make even one of the goals on the chart your focus, such daimoku will invariably give rise to a response from the environment. There is also a place on the card for you to include your personal targets. Step by step, together with our fellow members, let’s merge our collective successes into a celebration of glorious triumph in October!

“Even one daimoku can pervade the entire universe. Truly heartfelt and determined daimoku, therefore, has the power to move everything. Daisaku Ikeda.”
