1970s

1970s

Nichiren Buddhism first arrived at Penang and Klang, Selangor in 1964. From these two places, it spread to other parts of the country. Practitioners in the various states began forming state-based registered organisations in the 1970s to carry out their activities. The members carried out grassroots activities such as discussion meetings, study meetings and sharing Buddhism with the people around them.

This period also saw the establishment of a national organ publication which harnessed the efforts of youth correspondents and editorial staff from several states. COSMIC first rolled off the press in January 1977.

1976

SGM established its first centre in August 1976, where a colonial style bungalow near Georgetown in Penang was remodelled to serve as an activities venue and gathering point mainly for practitioners in Penang. The centre still stands today and is now the Soka Peace Centre Malaysia.
