The only Center to revive Indic Siddham -- the divine scripts of the Samurai

The first and foremost text in Japan's history is the Japanese translation of the Lotus Sutra by Prince Shotoku -- who also founded Japan's Constitution declaring Buddhism to be its Official Religion. Even today, the Japanese revere the ancient Indic script called Siddham -- which died out during the Nalanda Holocaust -- but was preserved by the Samurai as Bonji due to its ability to conjure divine power.  In honor of Prince Shotoku and the Samurai who preserved India's Siddham script as well as the Nalanda tradition -- we are promoting authentic exhibits and courses for the revival of Siddham in India thereby bringing back one of the rarest gems of Indic civilization to the land of its birth.
