 Quote of the Day 27th October 2017 by Daisaku Ikeda

 

WHO IS HE: Daisaku Ikeda (born 2 January 1928, Japan) is a Buddhist philosopher, educator, author, and anti-nuclear activist. He has served as the third president and then honorary president of the Soka Gakkai, the largest of Japan’s new religious movements. Ikeda is the founding president of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI), the world’s largest Buddhist lay organization with approximately 12 million practitioners in 192 countries and regions.

Ikeda was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1928, to a family of seaweed farmers. He survived the devastation of World War II as a teenager, which he said left an indelible mark on his life and fueled his quest to solve the fundamental causes of human conflict. At age 19, Ikeda began practicing Nichiren Buddhism and joined a youth group of the Soka Gakkai Buddhist association, which led to his lifelong work developing the global peace movement of SGI and founding numerous institutions dedicated to fostering peace, culture and education.

 

Quote of the Day 27th October 2017 by Daisaku Ikeda

EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND:

Ikeda was born in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan, on the 2nd of January, 1928. Ikeda had four older brothers, two younger brothers, and a younger sister. His parents later adopted two more children, for a total of 10 children. Since the mid-nineteenth century, the Ikeda family had successfully farmed nori, edible seaweed, in Tokyo Bay. By the turn of the twentieth century, the Ikeda family business was the largest producer of nori in Tokyo. However, after the devastation of the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, the family’s enterprise was left in ruins, and by the time Ikeda was born, his family was financially struggling.

 

CAREER:

Shortly after the end of World War II, in January 1946, Ikeda gained employment with the Shobundo Printing Company in Tokyo. In March 1948, Ikeda graduated from Toyo Trade School and the following month entered the night school extension of Taisei Gakuin (present-day Tokyo Fuji University) where he majored in political science. During this time, he worked as an editor of the children’s magazine Shonen Nihon (Boy’s Life Japan), which was published by one of Josei Toda’s companies. Over the next several years, between 1948 and 1953, Ikeda worked for various Toda-owned enterprises, including the Nihon Shogakkan publishing company, the Tokyo Construction Trust credit association, and the Okura Shoji trading company.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP:

In 1953, at the age of 25, Ikeda was appointed as one of the Soka Gakkai’s youth leaders. The following year, he was appointed as director of the Soka Gakkai’s public relations bureau, and later became its chief of staff.

In April 1957, a group of young Soka Gakkai members in Osaka were arrested for allegedly distributing money, cigarettes and candies to support the political campaign of a local electoral candidate (who was also a Soka Gakkai member). Ikeda was later arrested and detained in jail for two weeks, charged with allegedly overseeing these activities. Ikeda’s arrest came at a time when Soka Gakkai Buddhist candidates were achieving success at both national and local levels. With the growing influence of this liberal grassroots movement, factions of the conservative political establishment initiated a series of media attacks on the Soka Gakkai, culminating in Ikeda’s arrest. After a lengthy court case that lasted until 1962, Ikeda was cleared of all charges. The Soka Gakkai characterized this as a triumph over corrupt tyranny, which galvanized its movement.
