The FNCC is located on 125 acres of restored wetlands surrounding Toda Lake. Here amid the native Live Oak trees and Sabal Palms, discussions on Buddhism, philosophy and everyday life take place in a relaxing atmosphere.
"We could say that our social mission as Buddhists is to contribute broadly to society by establishing a new culture of humanism that gives expression to... joy. The creation of outstanding art and culture will attest to the greatness of this Buddhist philosophy." (Daisaku Ikeda, NHR, Vol. 27, Installments 35-36.)
