Soka Gakkai in Japan is teaching that the Original Eternal Buddha is Daisaku Ikeda for spreading Nam Myoho renge kyo throughout the world; Nichiren as True Buddha only spread Namu Myoho renge kyo to a handful of people and Shakyamuni Buddha didn't even spread Nam or Namu Myoho renge kyo.
"The truth of Buddhism has nothing to do with the opinion of the majority. All that is important is whether a belief is in accord with the scriptures. And, further, the golden words of the Buddha have already informed us that in the age of the Latter Day of the Law those who uphold the Right Dharma would be few in number. Thus the Nirvana Sutra says that "those who uphold the Right Dharma are as few as the grains of earth on a fingernail, and those that slander the Dharma are as numerous as the earth in of all the ten directions".
"One who is able to distinguish right from wrong among all these different opinions may be said to have a correct understanding of the teaching."
"If so, then there must be very few who have a correct understanding of the teaching."
