Causes and conditions, self power and other power

Causes: The power of faith and the power of practice
Conditions: The power of the Buddha and the power of the Law

One problem with Soka Gakkai teachings is that they focus on Causes, the faith and practice of the member and they downplay conditions or the power of the Law and especially, the power of the Buddha. This leads to a spirit of ingratitude because they attribute the benefits merely to their own efforts. Self power, is not enough to cross the Great Ocean of Life and Death.
