PROTECTION: Word used in SGI leader circles in the sense of "protecting the members from the TRUTH." The original meaning in the Lotus Sutra is, "To protect what the Buddha has entrusted to us", the opposite of hiding the truth.
Besides, what a lousy job they do of "protecting the members". Of the more than 600,000 Gohonzons bestowed by the Soka Gakkai over the last 40 years, only 35,000 active members remain. Most who quit the Soka Gakkai will never again, in this lifetime, chant Namu Myoho renge kyo.
