“We should all develop the mind to rejoice in, praise and share in the gift of those who have artistic talents and a richness of heart, whether they achieve wide recognition or not. Cultivating such a beautiful mind is a very worthy effort. Culture and art are not just decorations. They are not just accessories. What matters is whether culture enriches the essential substance of our lives.”
Daisaku Ikeda, Min-On Founder
Min-On has been working to revitalize musical culture worldwide—to launch a new global Renaissance—with a diverse range of public service projects in the spirit of its underlying goals of encouraging the development of new artistic talent, contributing to the emotional development of young people, and promoting a love of music in Japan and around the world.
