365 Days of Justice

Today, all those lies and malicious slanders have been put to rest, and the truth has triumphed. The mentors and disciples of Soka have won. Today across the globe, the Soka Gakkai and its first three presidents are highly praised and regarded as shining lights of hope for all humanity.

My Great Mentor

Went to kaikan after a long day in office. Think a lot about my career lately..

Received a message from PL and call from SB about them receiving reply messages from Sensei. How wonderful!! PL even told me one of the member couldn't hold back her tears when she receive this news from Sensei. Truly feel Sensei has never and will never miss anyone out when we seek him.. A great mentor that is so compassionate to all his fellow disciples.

Met YC, D, CH, CL, and the rest of the Carpentry Group at canteen. Chat with them regarding Sensei's message to them on preparation for tomorrow night's performance. Hope they will start to seek Sensei in their lives too.

Read Sensei's essay "Facing the Past, Embracing the Future". About how should Japan face the fact that the misery inflicted by Japanese militarism on people of Asia during WWII, Sensei wrote:
To make a sincere accounting of historical realities and reflect on past misdeeds is hardly "masochistic" or self-denigrating. It is, rather, a courageous amd honorable act.

Sensei is really the most unusual Japanese man in Japan. The courage he has to say the things he says is incredible. He speaks only the truth, but pays a very heavy price with the abuse he gets from the media and other Japanese.

Heard a moving encounter by a Tadika Seri Soka teacher who went to Beijing, China, and met up with a Chinese lady who was the director of the Ikeda Research Centre. Like many Chinese, she really hated the Japs for what they have done to Chinese during the WWII. Her turning point came when she visited Soka University and met Sensei, and heard him speak. She couldn't believe he was Japanese! From then on, she became a great admirer of Sensei. She reads his works on a daily basis, as she considers them more important than even her daily meals.

I have more to share... but till we meet.
