I drove to Singapore with BC yesterday. He was concerned about those rumors going around criticizing Gakkai wealth. He heard one of the MD member told his wife not to subscribe to Cosmic because Gakkai is very rich... I have heard this many times before but never had a chance to seriously talk to anyone about it. Yesterday was my first attempt to explain this to a concerned YMD. Not too sure how well he take it but my explanation was no matter how rich (or poor) Gakkai is today. Our thoughts of contribution shall come from one's heart. It shall never depend on any external circumstances. The spirit of intent is we want to contribute in our own small little way for this great cause of kosen-rufu. Never for once we think we are 'subsidizing' the kosen-rufu movement. One will stop 'subsidizing' once one find out there is enough in the pool and no point 'subsidizing' anymore.
