"It is able to deliver all the living from all sufferings and all diseases, and is able to unloose all the bonds of mortal life." -- Lotus Sutra Chapter 23

"Again, if anyone offers a three-thousand-great-thousandfold world full of the seven precious things in homage to buddhas, great bodhisattvas, pratyekabuddhas, and arhats, the merit this man gains is not equal to the surpassing happiness of him who receives and keeps but a single fourfold verse [Namu Myoho renge kyo] of this Law-Flower Sutra." -- Lotus Sutra Chapter 23 THE FORMER DEEDS OF MEDICINE KING BODHISATTVA 

"Star Constellation King Flower! This sutra is that which can save all the living; this sutra can deliver all the living from pains and sufferings; this sutra is able greatly to benefit all the living and fulfill their desires. Just as a clear, cool pool is able to satisfy all those who are thirsty, as the cold who obtain a fire [are satisfied], as the naked who find clothing, as [a caravan of] merchants who find a leader, as children who find their mother, as at a ferry one who catches the boat, as a sick man who finds a doctor, as in the darkness one who obtains a lamp, as a poor man who finds a jewel, as people who find a king, as merchant venturers who gain the sea, and as a torch which dispels the darkness, so is it also with this Law-Flower Sutra; it is able to deliver all the living from all sufferings and all diseases, and is able to unloose all the bonds of mortal life." [ibid]

Soka Spirit is blind to the irony

"As I view what is happening today to Nichiren Shoshu and Soka Gakkai, what is obvious is the decline and insanity of Nichiren Shoshu where the high priest is worshiped as absolute, living Buddha. What is also conspicuous is the increasing rise of the Soka Gakkai where we can witness the splendor of the spirit of the first, second and third presidents of the Soka Gakkai. Enveloped by their infinite fortune and virtue, Soka Gakkai members continue to contribute to society. Through this remarkable difference between the two entities, we can clearly tell where the lifeblood of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism is pulsating today." 

Paranoid SGIzophrenia

"However, Yamazaki was no more than a bubble on the surface of the water, as he attempted to swim through the ocean of Japanese society using the energy of the anti-Gakkai movement in Japan. Certainly, Yamazaki initiated an anti-Gakkai campaign by the press that started in 1977, but he did not create this groundswell on his own. Yamazaki was being used by the international secret intelligence agencies or domestic anti-Gakkai forces that had their own agendas." -- Soka Spirit 

How'd they do this department?

A bunch of "Nichiren" believers hanging out in a bar

Believer #1 [KHK]: I'll take my Nichiren straight up
Believer # 2 [KHK]: I'll take a shot of Nichiren
Believer # 3 [KHK]: Make mine a double
Believer # 4 [SGI]: I'll have a Nichiren and water, lots of water please
Believer # 5 [NST] I'm in the mood for a mixed drink. How about a Sado Island Iced Tea with a shot of Nichiren, a splash of Tientai, a splash of Zen, and lots of Shingon. 
Believer # 6 [NS]: I'll have a virgin Nichiren
Believer # 7 [HBS]: I'll have Nichiren with a glass of magic okozui water on the side.
Believer # 8 [Indy]: Hmm, let me see, um, um....

Shinzo Abe, Daisaku Ikeda dialogue

Daisaku Ikeda: Hello Shitso my good friend. How are you, the wife, and the consorts? 
Shitso Abe: We are all fine. How about you, the wife, and your consorts?
Ikeda: We are all well, thank you my friend.
Abe: I need your help Tais...uh,uhh, Daisaku.
Ikeda: Anything for you Shitso. You have been so good to my envoy Nutso Yamaguchi. He's not too bright but he's very loyal.
Abe: Yes. That's what I like about him. [bowing very deeply] I am so grateful to you. There is no way I can repay you for having dropped every fundamental principle that you made believe that you held dear to support me on the military buildup thang and our plan to to alter Article 9...
Ikeda: Well there is something...
Abe: Please please, let me finish. I still need one itsy bitsy thing from you.
Ikeda: [Ikeda through his transcendent wisdom and abilities knows what Abe is going to say before he says it] No problema amigo. We have been keeping secrets since the elevator incident [Toda having passed on the SGI presidency to Ikeda in an elevator but according to some, Toda really had someone else in mind]. I can give you and Taro [Taro Aso, Shitso's pitbull deputy] a few pointers [wink, wink]. First thing, surround yourself with dumb as clams ministers who worship the ground you walk on and follow no matter what. 
Abe: Already done!
Ikeda: Then lie through your teeth to them. They won't suspect a thing and if they do open their big traps, they will be telling the lies that you told them anyway.
Abe: Brilliant!
Ikeda: I know. More importantly, always have contingency plans and policies. Say one thing today and another tomorrow and be sure to rewrite history, like the comfort women thang, the rape of Nanking, your dismal record on human rights, the trillions of yen stolen from the treasury, and the sex scandals...ah the sex scandals. That will keep them too busy to enquire about the quadrillions of beckerels leaking into the pacific ocean daily, and the thousands who are sick and dying.. Be sure to put out lots of meaningless statements.
Abe: AH SO!
Ikeda: Now Shitso, about the thing you can do for me.
Abe: Yes, yes, anything.
Ikeda: Please don't tell anyone I'm dead.
