Pulsating Soka Gakkai night
It’s intergrated culture as Soka Gakkai members perform an Indian traditional dance.
KUALA LUMPUR: About 900 young performers, aged seven to 20 years old, captivated the audience at the recent celebrations of Soka Gakkai Malaysia’s 24th anniversary.
Members of the Soka Gakkai organisation form a human tower.
The “Goodwill and Cultural Night” also marked the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Soka Gakkai culture centre near Taman Kota, Cheras, and the visit by the organisation’s Japanese founder Dr Daisaku Ikeda to the centre 20 years ago.
Soka Gakkai, which means “value-creation society”, was set up to contribute to the well-being of the country and promote friendship, family happiness, racial harmony and peace.
It is based on Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhist philosophy of humanism, compassion and respect for the sanctity of life.
The audience comprised Soka Gakkai members, guests and people who live near the centre.
The show included performances by exponents from Seri Silat Lincah Taman Sri Nanding, hip-hop dancers, a choir, brass-bands and a gymnastic team.
Among the performances were a contemporary dance with a pyrotechnic show and young boys creating human towers.
All the performers joined in a rousing rendition of the High School Musical theme song.
Federation of National Writers Associations of Malaysia president Tan Sri Prof Emeritus Dr Ismail Hussein was among the guests.
The ‘Malam Muhibah & Kebudayaan Soka Gakkai Malaysia (SGM) 2008′ was officiated by The President of The Federation of National Writer Associations of Malaysia (GAPENA), Y.Bhg.
