1964 - 1977
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.
