Reiyukai Youth Group Society (YGS)

The Reiyukai Youth Group Society was founded in 1954 by the co-founder of Reiyukai, Mrs. Kimi Kotani, with the purpose to cultivate the young generation who would contribute for the construction of world peace and sustain the future of Japan. The Youth Group Society encourages all the young generation to apply the “Bodhisattva Practice” on a daily basis to live and create a productive life as well as become someone who can contribute for the sake of society. Today, members ages 13 to 39 years old belong to the YGS and are actively involved to become a better person, create a better family, society, community, nation, and world. Some of the activities organized by the YGS are “Youth Leadership Training Seminars at Mirokusan,” “Youth Gatherings,” “Reiyukai Founder’s Peace Commemoration Tower Visiting Practice at Shichimenzan,” “Myoichi-Kai Flower Festival,” and many more.
