My guest is Sven Hillring, a 23-year member of the SGI or Soka Gakkai International. Soka Gakkai has been controversial both in the United States and in its home country, Japan, for its cult-like recruitment tactics and its falling out with the temple with which it was originally associated (Nichiren Shoshu). However, those issues are far from the daily experience of the average SGI Buddhist. Sven highlights that his 23-year journey has always been about one thing: how to be happy.
