"The seventh volume of the Lotus Sutra states: 'Even if a person were to fill the whole major world system with the seven treasures as an offering to the Buddha and the great bodhisattvas, pratyekabuddhas and arhats, the benefits gained by such a person cannot match those gained by accepting and upholding this Lotus Sutra, even just one four-line verse of it! The latter brings the most numerous blessings of all.'” -- Nichiren

"Do not succumb to rationality" -- Domenico Giannocaro SGI Italy national Sokahan leader and "The truth must me negotiated." -- Joan Anderson SGI International leader
Question: It sometimes happens that another Buddhist activity or event for private life does not allow you to do the activity sokahan . What should be given priority?
Answer: "We have the Gohonzon and we must use it to the fullest. You have to make a choice. The important thing is to use the Gohonzon and strengthen our faith without succumbing to rationality. In this way, whatever we decide to do will be the right choice. The assets are used to support our life. The important thing is the spirit with which we are in front of the Gohonzon. " This was the answer by Domenico Giannocaro (deputy national coordinator sokahan ).
Response: Also, according to one SGI international leader Joan Anderson, "The truth must me negotiated." SGI is no better than the politicians of the world who insist like Clarence Carter, "don't believe the video of me cheating on you, believe what I tell you." The truth to SGI is not what the Lotus Sutra terms "Thus" [or such] or what is is, the truth to SGI is what is agreed upon. Even in this statement by Joan Anderson who is one of the most influential non-Japanese Soka Gakkai functionaries in the entire world, we see the lying disingenuous nature of the Soka Gakkai where nothing is "negotiated" but rather decreed by the mentor emperor. Outside the SGI, in their dealings with others, everything is negotiated [compromised] but within the Soka Gakkai, not one thing is negotiated. What would the Buddha and Nichiren Daishonin think of them?
SGI members can not even get across a moat a few yards wide. How can they hope to get across the great ocean of life and death?
Nichiren tied an oath to the statue of Shakyamuni Buddha and saved his temple from falling into the hands of Tojo Kakenobu and the Amidists:
"...The villainous Tojo Saemon Kagenobu once hunted the deer and other animals kept by Seicho-ji, and tried to force the priests in the various lodging temples to become Nembutsu believers. At that time I pitted myself against Tojo and supported the lord of the manor. I composed a fervent oath that read, “If the two temples Kiyosumi and Futama should come into Tojo’s possession, I will discard the Lotus Sutra!” Then I tied it to the hand of the object of devotion, to which I prayed continuously. Within a year, both temples had been freed from Tojo’s grasp. Certainly Bodhisattva Space Treasury will never forget this, so how can those priests who make light of me avoid being forsaken by the heavenly gods? Hearing me say this, the more foolish of you may think that I am invoking a curse upon you. But that is not so. I am warning you simply because it would be a pity if you should fall into the hell of incessant suffering after your death."
SGI members couldn't even save "The High Sanctuary of the Ten Thousand Years and More of the Latter Age" from the clutches of "the evil Nikken sect" with trillions of Daimoku and oaths on every SGI altar.
Of course you should trust what your SGI Japanese senior leaders and Nichiren Shoshu priests teach you
Just prior to Pearl Harbor Japanese envoys meeting with Franklin Roosevelt in November 1941.
"There's been a sharp spike in radiation levels measured in the pipes and containers holding water at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan.
But the company in charge of cleaning it up says that only a single drop of the highly contaminated water escaped the holding tanks." --CNN
The Soka Gakkai and Nichiren Shoshu leaders and priests say that Nichiren is the Original Eternal Buddha. But Nichiren says that Shakyamuni is the Original Eternal Buddha.
SGI teaches that humility towards Gohonzon is a bad thing, "They might glorify the Gohonzon to the extent they humble themselves" [World Tribune Jan. 24th 2003]. Yet, they are taught to humble themselves before their Sensei and leaders, "humility is at the heart of the mentor-disciple relationship, and it is also the key to developing true confidence."
