Inaugurated in the fall of 2015, our Profiles section combines photographic portraits with brief reflections from each person on themes and ideas relating to our core convictions. These profiles, which feature friends of the Ikeda Center, are posted regularly to our social media sites and are archived here by topic, for cumulative viewing.
