Hollow words from two pseudo-Buddhist members of a personality cult who have abandoned the profound [Nichiren] for the shallow [Daisaku Ikeda]. All the new age self help and personal empowerment talk in the world can not break the steel shackles of anger, avarice, and stupidity, the fundamental evils inherent in life. Only chanting Namu Myoho renge kyo with faith in the Lotus Sutra can enable all people to attain Buddhahood. Other discourse, be it discourse on peace, culture, or even education, is fruitless because they have been the armamentarium of great thinkers since the dawn of man without even a modicum of success. The words of the Buddha and his messenger Nichiren Daishonin, on the other hand, are the very words that will cause peace and security to flow into the wasteland of the people's lives.
