One of Rissho Kosei-kai’s peace activities that continues to attract wide support is the Donate-a-Meal Movement which was officially inaugurated in 1974. Rissho Kosei-kai members who participate in the movement forgo a meal on the first and fifteenth of every month. Then, through their local Dharma centers they contribute the money saved to the Rissho Kosei-kai Donate-a-Meal Fund for Peace. Members taking part in the movement are moved by compassion for people suffering from hunger, illness, natural disasters and so on, and pray that their donations may help relieve their suffering and also contribute to world peace. This movement is founded upon the One-Vehicle spirit of the Lotus Sutra, which reveals the truth that all people are brothers and sisters sustained by the one immense Life of the universe.
