Empathy, Courage, and Connection: Examining Daisaku Ikeda’s 2022 Peace Proposal

In this episode, host Lillian I welcomes back Center staff Anri Tanabe and Preandra Noel to share reflections on Daisaku Ikeda’s 2022 Peace Proposal, “Transforming Human History: The Light of Peace and Dignity.” Some of the themes from the proposal they explore include: the importance of fostering empathy, healing and community, the preciousness of all life, and creating a world where every individual feels the joy of being alive. Since 1983, Mr. Ikeda has issued an annual peace proposal offering a Buddhist perspective on and solutions to global problems. ⁣
