Meiho Gakuin, an educational corporation, was founded by Reiyukai with the aim of providing an ideal opportunity for school education and thus contributing for the betterment of society. The Meiho Junior and Senior High School was founded by the Meiho Gakuin in 1964. The founding principle for this school is to cultivate a person who can contribute for the society, for the nation, and for all humanity thereby striving for world peace by being thankful to be born into this world, brightening their intellectuality, and acquiring good habits through years of practice attending this school.
The International College for Postgraduate Buddhist Studies (ICPBS) was founded in 1996. Originally Reiyukai owned a library with a rich collection of Buddhist materials that served as the basis of the International Institute for Buddhist Studies which was inaugurated in 1982 and actively prompted academic exchanges with a large number of world famous institutions and scholars. The College was established with the aim of further developing the research activities and the training of new generations of Buddhist scholars. The ICPBS is a postgraduate college consisting of only one department which specializes in Buddhist studies. In size, it is one of the smallest academic institutions of its kind in the world, but it strives to achieve high goals in their mission of education and research.
In 1956, His late Majesty King Mahendra formally initiated the development of Lumbini, the birthplace of Shakyamuni Buddha. Some ten years later, during his 1967 Nepal visit, the late U Thant, the UN Secretary General at that time, made the Lumbini Development Project an inter-national cause. In 1978, following an official request by His Majesty’s Government of Nepal, Reiyukai decided to construct and donate the Lumbini International Research Institute facilities. By 1989, part of the Institute was completed, and in 1992, in order to complete the Institute facilities, and as one of the projects commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Kakutaro Kubo, the founder of Reiyukai, further fundraising began among Reiyukai members and the general public. Furthermore, in 1994, Reiyukai agreed to cooperate with the Lumbini Development Trust in administering and managing the Lumbini International Research Institute upon its completion in 1995.
