According to their mentor, SGI members are shirkers and idlers

"On the other hand, 'shirkers and idlers' who fail to speak out when they should and who are unable to repudiate evil are, in the final analysis, slandering the Law themselves. . . . no matter how much daimoku lazy people chant, they will not receive true benefit or develop a diamondlike state of being. They will not attain Buddhahood. . . . Buddhism is very strict. No matter what excuses people make or what leadership position they hold, if they do not fight against evil, they will fall into hell." January 11, 1997 speech by SGI President Daisaku Ikeda in Tokyo, February 21, 1997, World Tribune (p. 11)
