Lets put the high salaried SGI senior leaders to work flipping burgers at McDonalds [or Pepper Lunch in Japan]

“The correct teachings are those that work for you” -- SGI member

This is a gross misconception. The Catholics believe their teachings work for them. The Muslims and Hindus too. Nichiren doesn’t teach this so please [SGI] cease and desist. Stop calling yourselves "Nichiren Buddhists" and "SGI is Nichiren Daishonin’s teachings". SGI would have us believe this nonsense because they have changed the faith and practice of Nichiren Daishonin. The True Teachings are difficult to believe, difficult to understand, and difficult to practice. Promoting the same faith and practice as Nichiren Daishonin would limit SGI’s customer base, forcing the high salaried Japanese senior leaders to flip burgers at McDonalds.


  1. "so please [SGI] cease and desist. Stop calling yourselves "Nichiren Buddhists"

    A contradition in terms "Soka Gakkai Nichiren Buddhism" as SGI is now promoting itself as having moved away from the "has roots in Nichiren Buddhism".

    SGI - Buddhahood is attained through the mentor-disciple relationship

    Nichiren - buddhahood is attained through faith in the Lotus Sutra alone - Namu Myoho Renge Kyo.

    Soka Gakkai Nichiren Buddhism = Oxymoron.

    Ikeda Wisdom Academy = Oxymoron.

    SGI = Oxymorons abound

    Following SGI mentors or teachings = moronic.

    You've much better than that. Wake up people and smell the cash registers!

    Nichiren's teaching = clear, simple, free, effective & liberating

    SGI teaching = confusing, complicated, expensive (time & money), ineffective & enslaving

    What's to choose?

  2. And just to clarify, I'm in agreement with Mark - yes the true teachings are difficult to believe and understand, which is why Nichiren emphasised faith and provided a simple practice and encouraged faith. He concentrated most of his efforts here, whilst concentrating the rest of his efforts to refuting erroneous doctrines and teachers.

    Focus on faith and chant Daimoku to the best of your ability and you won't go astray. Keep your eyes on the prize. Namu Myoho Renge Kyo. Rely on the Law. Simple.
