Wherever is established the Soka Gakkai disasters and calamities follow

We need look no further than Japan, Korea, the United States, Brazil, and Italy. Since the establishment of the Soka Gakkai in Korea California and Hawai are the two headquarters of the Soka Gakkai ine the United States. Japan is still reeling from Fukushima. World War II, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki can be traced back to Soka Gakkai's inauspicious beginnings. Korea, the most populous Soka Gakkai foothold outside Japan, is under the constant threat of war. Brazil has aexperienced a recent Dam collapse, has one of the most corrupt governing bodies in the history of mankind , and is home to the worst ghettos in South America. The rainforest is being cut down at an alarming rate.  In Hawai we have a volcanic eruption and in California we have, droughts, heat waves, and firenados. SGI-Italy, the European headquarters of the Soka Gakkai was established in the late 1970s. In 1980, the largest earthquake of the modern era killed almost 5000 people and injured almost 9000. Italy is experiencing a protracted recession, an unsustainable migrant crisis, and three active volcanoes. Nichiren on the other hand promises:

“The Lotus Sutra is the teaching of shakubuku, the refutation of the provisional doctrines.” True to the letter of this golden saying, in the end, every last one of the believers of the provisional teachings and schools will be defeated and join the retinue of the Dharma King. The time will come when all people will abandon the various kinds of vehicles and take up the single vehicle of Buddhahood, and the Mystic Law alone will flourish throughout the land. When the people all chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, the wind will no longer buffet the branches, and the rain will no longer break the clods of soil. The world will become as it was in the ages of Fu Hsi and Shen Nung. In their present existence the people will be freed from misfortune and disasters and learn the art of living long. Realize that the time will come when the truth will be revealed that both the person and the Law are unaging and eternal. There cannot be the slightest doubt about the sutra’s promise of “peace and security in their present existence.”
