In the September 14, 1992 World Tribune, Mr. Ikeda stated:
"Today the only true inheritor of the Daishonin's way of master and disciple is the Soka Gakkai. I declare this unequivocally. That's why the Soka Gakkai is so important. Without our organization, the True Law would be utterly lost. There would be no way to save humanity. That is why supporting and defendiing the Soka Gakkai are the same as defending and advancing the Daishonin's Buddhism."
