And because these claims do not accord with reason. The "benefits" all of these self professed leaders have attained, were neither attained nor sought by the "original buddha" they claim to follow. Like all other major world religions, SGI & NST have co-opted the identity of a person of virtue and compassion, claimed special knowledge and direct connection to an exemplary human being; making an appearance of virtue, while acting in direct opposition to the teachings of the person whose name and identity affords them status of superiority over others. ~Katie
