"Taisaku Ikeda does not really wish to receive all of these honors, ride in chauffeured limousines, or stay in luxurious 5 star hotels. He endures all this suffering for the sake of the members. Promoting Mr. Ikeda as a world leader, on par with Ghandi and King, allows SGI members an opportunity to create boundless good fortune. When I think of his great sacrifice, it brings tears to my eyes.
One time, while Ikeda was in New York, there was some foul up on his flight plans. He was forced to ride on a train, with the unwashed masses. I was told he handled that painful ordeal with grace. What a guy!"
