“During the Cold War—of which the Berlin Wall was the most potent symbol—I strove wholeheartedly to carry on Mr. Toda’s ideals as his true disciple, and engaged in dialogue with people around the globe to promote peace, culture, and education—an endeavor in which all of you have joined me.
More than five decades have passed since I first embarked on that effort. Today, a vast humanistic network, founded on solid trust and friendship that no adversity can shake, extends throughout Europe and the entire world. The spirit of the first three Soka Gakkai presidents will live on forever in these strong and beautiful heart-to-heart bonds of fearless individuals.” — Part of Daisaku Ikeda’s Message for the 53rd SGI Headquarters Leaders Meeting ["November 6, 2011"]
"Mentor also predicted that we would one day have a black President. He saw racism in Chicago and chanted for equality in America and President Obama was elected." -- Tom SGI member in response to "Tear down that wall".
Since Daisaku Ikeda takes credit for everything, he should take credit for the Tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster too. He [they] has no sense of shame. The great mentor is the living Wizard of Oz.
