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.

Kosenrufu in Pulau Ketam

Last night we had a region meeting and S8 Honbu YMD chiefs reported their resolution to kickoff kosenrufu and Soka Spirit movement in Pulau Ketam. Everyone of us are very impressed on the YMD chiefs' initiatives. They have reported our major hurdle could be the N Sect believers on the island. N Sect has 40 families on the island and 37 of them been to Tozan. Gakkai has only 1 Gohonzon member family on the island. It is definitely not an easy task and it will be a great challenge indeed. However, I am looking at it as we can proof the greatness of Nichiren Buddhism and the righteousness of Gakkai through our Itai-Doshin (Many in Body, One in Mind) spirit. I remembered reading this recently,
"In contrast, although Nichiren and his folllowers are few, because they are different in body but united in mind, they will definitely accomplish their great mission of widely propagating the Lotus Sutra. Though evils may be numerous, they cannot prevail over a single great truth [or good], just as many raging fires are quenched by a single shower of rain. This principle also holds true with Nichiren and his followers (WND-1, pg618)
Sensei further elaborate to be united in mind, it simply means to be in the same mind with Mentor, Sensei.
In order to win this battle in Pulau Ketam kosenrufu, we need to be Itai-Doshin to win over the majority N Sect believers and new members. And the tenet in this Itai-Doshin is the spirit of Oneness of Mentor and Disciple.
