In March 2017 KL All Leaders Meeting, the General Director started his speech with a lengthy explanation on how some people were spreading rumour of Ikeda Sensei being held captive and stopped from public appearance. He went on to say that such allegations were unfounded and carried out with malicious intent.
With all the drama surrounding SGM today, we felt that it is important we return to the guidance of Mr Ikeda and remind ourselves once again. Please read and carefully ponder. Ten points to always keep in mind, and manifest in our behaviour at all times. First, never be haughty. Leader must be modest through… Read More The way of a Gakkai leader
This question is probably in everyone’s mind this week. If you will hear us out, here are our thoughts: We do gokuyo for Buddhism, not for SGM. There are many ways to contribute to the Law, one of them is with sincere chanting to Gohonzon, helping our friends in pain, introducing and encouraging others to… Read More Should I do gokuyo for SGM?
Bruce: Tell me, who call the shots in SGM, is it SGI in Japan, or the top leaders in SGM? There seems to be a lot of reference made to SGI Japan, saying that this or that decision is being made by SGI.

Deviation or forgetting any of these points can easily derail the movement. We felt that the points raised were very relevant to us today, and good for us to study them together. Here… Read More The foundations of a great organisation
