Taurin is a member of the lay Buddhist organization Soka Gakkai International whose mission is to accomplish world peace through individual happiness. It's focus is on peace, culture and education with a heavy emphasis on creating dialogue and fostering the youth to become capable leaders. The SGI's primary practice is chanting nam-myoho-renge-kyo (the title of the lotus sutra) and reciting excerpts from that sutra in the morning and evening. Chanting raises ones life condition and allows one to see each moment of life clearly and to make causes that create value and lead one to happiness. The three pillars of faith, practice and study compose ones practice and include studying the writings of Nichiren Daishonin, the Lotus Sutra, and guidances from SGI president Daisaku Ikeda.
