Nikkyo Niwano co-founded the Japanese Buddhist movement Rissho Kosei-Kai, which aims to establish “the teaching of the true Law in the world, mutual exchange of thought among people of faith, and the perfection of the personality.”

The movement blossomed from a handful of adherents into the world’s largest Buddhist lay group. Niwano was also the founder of the World Conference on Religion and Peace.
