Answer: The very best mentor(s) and the mentor(s) with whom we have the longest relationship, Shakyamuni of the Juryo Chapter of the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren Daishonin. How many SGI-USA members have been face to face trained by Daisaku Ikeda? Not one. However, every morning and evening, we meet face to face with the Eternal Buddha and Nichiren. Sad are they who choose an inferior mentor, especially on the road to Supreme and Perfect Enlightenment. This is why so many SGI members are amoral by any standard.
