For Today and Tomorrow

Daily Encouragement by Daisaku Ikeda
Sunday, November 18, 2012:

The Soka Gakkai's goal is kosen-rufu—realizing human happiness and world peace by widely spreading the philosophy and ideals of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism. We will continue to strive earnestly for this goal, undaunted by criticism, slander or malicious attempts to hinder our progress. That is because what we are doing is the will and decree of the original Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin. I proclaim that all who energetically exert themselves for the cause of kosen-rufu are genuine disciples of the Daishonin and genuine members of the SGI.


Soka Gakkai Founding Day
1930: Soka Gakkai is established.
1944: Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, the Soka Gakkai's first president, dies in prison.
