    Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii, the founding preceptor of ‘Nippozan Myohoji’ met Gandhiji in 1933 at Wardha and became his life-long admirer. Gandhiji, too, impressed by his infinite clarity of purpose and dedication to peace, named him Fujii Guruji. In 1983, 1983, Fujii Guruji expressed his wish to build a Vishwa Shanti Stupa at Wardha. In 1993, the President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma inuagurated the Stupa. Read more facts about the Vishwa Shanti Stupa on the Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation website.
