Transforming the Human Spirit Exhibit
The exhibit: From a Culture of Violence to a Culture of Peace: Transforming the Human Spirit is a travelling exhibit of SGI-USA. It was displayed at Stanford University from April 30 - May 2, 2008. It focuses on the theme that to create lasting peace and eliminate violence, rather than through high level social reform, ultimately it lies on whether the spirit of each individual in the earth can inherently embraced this spirit of peace in our heart.

Gandhi, King, Ikeda Exhibit
The Gandhi, King, Ikeda Exhibit is a celebration of humanist virtues and their champions. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), Martin Luther King (1929-1968) and Daisaku Ikeda (1928- ) are three men from distinct cultural and religious backgrounds who shared a common vision: to fight for human rights, non-violence and world peace. Mahatma Gandhi led the campaign against the colonial rule of the British Empire in India; Martin Luther King fought against the injustice and prejudice against people of color in America, while Daisaku Ikeda encourages millions of common people in the world to live a life of dignity and to world for world peace.
The exhibit provides a holistic look at Gandhi's, King's, and Ikeda's respective movements, their accomplishments, and their contributions to world peace. Originally commissioned by Dean Lawrence Carter of the Morehouse College in 1999, the exhibit has been hold at universities such as the Princeton University, UC Berkeley, the University of Missouri, Ohio State University, the University of Oregon, and California State University, Los Angeles.
The exhibit came to Stanford University in 2004. Our club, World Peace Buddhists, was the principal organiser of the exhibit, which was displayed here from January 10 to January 29 that year.
