NPR’s New Religions Survey, Part III: Soka Gakkai

As part of our series on new religious movements, NPR’s Mandalit del Barco explores a modern version of Buddhism known as Soka Gakkai. It’s an import from Asia, brought to the United States by Japanese war brides. In the 1960s, it caught on with anti-war hippies. Now it has more than 300,000 adherents in the United States, most of them middle class, from all ethnic groups.
