Buying Respect for Ikeda a damning post by Barbara O'Brien with commentary by high level SGI leaders


Dear Barbara:

You certainly have generated a lot of interest from the Soka Gakkai; two Vice General Directors, Ian McIlraith and Bill Aiken. I applaud you.

Ghandi, King, and Ikeda are all controversial men. I will leave aside Dr. King for the moment. The Dalits [untouchables], the oppressed peoples of India of whom I had contact through the editor of the Dalit Voice, VT Rajshekar, are certainly not impressed with the Mahatma [Ghandi]. Those million people who died in the forced March of 1947 too, would not be impressed. According to the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin, good intentions are fraught with unintended consequences when not based on the Lotus Sutra and the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha (Enlightenment).

It was only Shakyamuni Buddha, in the entire history of India, who had the Dalits best interest in mind. Buddha taught that one becomes a Brahmin through virtue, not through birth. Ghandi was too embroiled in the teachings of castism, to have been anything but a pawn of the Brahmanical power brokers.

Daisaku Ikeda is a pawn of the power brokers of the Club of Rome and their new world order while the Lotus Sutra teaches that peace and security in this life and a fortunate birth in the next is realized through the One Buddha Vehicle. The socio-political strategies of such men as Ghandi, Ikeda, and King, are doomed to failure.

  3. Do you realize that your website resembles a Japanese Media outlet. Where there is a lot of rag time talk without much VERIFIABLE EVIDENCE? In America we base our debates on "VERIFIABLE EVIDENCE". Do yourself and your readers a favor.
    And I challenge you... to watch and read Japanese media for 30 days. Reflect on whether or not it resembles your website. Remember An American editor of any respectable publication will base their argument on atleast 2 Verifiable sources. thank you.

  4. btw...I am not very familiar with Buddhism. But I am familiar with Japanese culture, media and news outlets. Trust me you don't want to go down that path.

    1. then watch and listen. No need to speak except to ask questions about Buddhism. Nearly everythng I write comes from actual quotes. I'm not going to do your homework for you and I'm not a journalist but rather a votary of the Lotus Sutra.

    2. You call yourself a "votary of the Lotus Sutra"? You are a slanderer of the Lotus Sutra. Anyone who would post a bunch of unfounded zero-fact articles that resembles the stuff that the Nichiren Shoshu used to put online - probably before they figured out that posting such stuff gets you a call from a lawyer - WHICH IT SHOULD! If you wrote this kind of garbage about me, and posted zero facts, I'd call a lawyer on you, too, probably, except that would dignify this blabfest of ignorant 'net trolls.

    3. Figures a troll who calls himself an actual Buddhist but can's discuss the teachings. Pitiful.

  5. then why don't you source anything on this blog. for all I know as a writer you are committing plagiarism. do you know how to source. It's very easy. go purdueowl.org. you really should do that. otherwise it makes your site look very baseless. you are running from my statement...and i will do my own research. i have a brain. a friend referred me here. I am studying all major religions. it is a free country. and I will exercise my constitutional rights. or shall we go to israel where the military does not allow one to freely express their views. As do many other countries.

  6. And the way you say "No need to speak except to ask questions about Buddhism" sounds like an angry parent speaking to a little child, which i am neither. this has not been my understanding of buddhism. of people talking down to someone else. I am allowed to voice my opinion that you do not paint a welcoming picture whatsoever of buddhism. thank you.

  7. You go do your homework. I already did mine. You can source nearly everything I have written on the internet save for any original articles by me. If you searched and couldn't find my sources for anything, I may be able to source them for you. If you really don't like the Lotus Sutra, Nichiren, the Eagle Peak Blog, or me, then get lost. We are not running for office.

    1. So your reply to "why don't you provide any sources" for your accusations is to say "yes I did". Haha, good job, Donald Trump!

    2. Everything is well sourced. You need to study. I will not do your homework for you.

  8. Now Mark, that's not how we do Shakabuku. Anonymous try the chant of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, just try it for a few days and see if you feel enlightened, happy, serene, free. If not, then you don't. All this theoretical bantering back-n-forth causes hate not love. Actual proof to absolute joy and overcoming our fundamental darkness is what we really seek, right?

  9. No. You perform interfaith prayers and disgrace the Lotus Sutra and Nichiren. SGI members are as enlightened as rocks. You confuse Rapture for Buddha, shoju for shakubuku, and black for white [because you replace Shakyamuni Buddha with the pig-man Ikeda]. Shameful is what you are.

    1. So Buddhist! Why would I listen to someone like Ikeda who only talks about peace all the time? I should just listen to you since you use the word "pig-man".

      Delete
    2. No. You should listen to me because I follow Nichiren and protect his teaching while the pig-man Ikeda teaches Yui Yoga [Guru Yoga].

  10. Sgi members are as enlightened as rocks. That is It in a nutshell.I can't believe that I was brainwashed by them. I was a member form10 years then I stoped because I was getting sick of the arrogance of leaders. I started chanting again when I hit a rough patch in my life.And if I wasn't so vulnerable I would have never bought into all of the crap. They are so so phoney. They are brainwashed by an organization that just wants money and power. But on the outside just wears a mask. I hate them all. And I don't feel anything bad about saying so. How many times did I hear chant for people you don't like to see there Buddha nature. I say that is just total bullshit.Why should I waste time worrying about the happiness of an asshole. Any body reading this do your self a favor and stay away from these dulsional nuts who think their mission is to save the world.They are brainwashed into believing this is what they are doing. They think if they spread " the law" they will get benefit for being a part of creating world peace. All they really want is benefit not world peace. I know people who sit in front of their gohonzon chanting for a high paying job. If they really gave a shit about world peace they would be chanting about how,to actually do it rather than chanting to a magic lantern that's going to bring them what they want. I'm not saying that they don't want world peace. Most normal human beings desire this. But tell me how on earth are they so brainwashed into believing that if they get their high paying job and are happy that's doing anything what so ever for world,peace. The sgi is filled with greedy arrogant self ritchious condescending idiots

  12. I SPENT MANY, MANY YEARS TRYING TO ADVANCE THE CAUSE OF ''WORLD PEACE'' UNDER THE PATRIARCHY OF THE GAKKAI. MY CONCLUSION IS THAT THE SGI IS IMMERSED IN JAPANESE ETHNOCENTRISM. PERHAPS THEY ARE THE MOST ETHNOCENTRIC CULTURE ON EARTH. THEY ONLY GAVE THE LEADERSHIP TO NON-JAPANESE AFTER THE ORGANIZATION BEGAN IT'S STEEP DECLINE/NOSE-DIVE, SEVERAL YEARS AFTER THE SPLIT WITH THE CLERGY. THE JAPANESE GENERAL DIRECTORS SUCH AS WILLIAMS, NAKASHIMA, AND ZAITSU WERE CLEARLY LINGUISTICALLY STUNTED. FOR DECADES, THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF MEMBERS IN THE U.S. WERE RUDELY FORCED TO DECIPHER LINGUISTIC GARBLINGS, BECAUSE THESE SO-CALLED LEADERS NEVER BOTHERED TO ACTUALLY LEARN A MODICUM OF FLUENT ENGLISH. I HAVE HEARD MANY, MANY ASIAN-BORN AMERICANS, OR ASIAN/AMERICANS WITH ABSOLUTELY PERFECT ENGLISH SKILLS.....BUT NOT THESE GAKKAI, SENIOR LEADERS. ONE WOULD ASK, WHY DOESN'T IT IMPROVE, OR CAN'T THEY CHANT TO IMPROVE THEIR SPEAKING VOICE. IT NEVER OCCURED TO THEM THAT LANGUAGE AND THE POWER OF THE SPOKEN WORD IS ACTUALLY CRUCIAL TO THEIR ORGANIZATION'S OBJECTIVES, WHICH THEY NEVER FAILED TO GLORIFY. IT IS A SIGN, I WOULD SAY, THAT THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, OR THE ENGLISH SPEAKING MEMBERS, SOMEHOW, ARE INSIGNIFICANT. IF ENGLISH-SPEAKING BUDDHISTS WERE FAIRLY VALUED AND RESPECTED, SO-CALLED ''LEADERS'' WOULD, ''USE THEIR VOICE TO CARRY OUT THE BUDDHA'S WORK'', AS THE BUDDHIST ADAGE GOES. NO, THEIR ETHNOCENTRICITY MAY BE THEIR STUBBORN AND PAINFUL ACHILLES TENDON. IT MAY BE THE SOLE, INCURABLE, ''OBSTACLE'' THAT THEY JUST COULD NOT GRAPPLE WITH........IF THE ROLES WERE REVERSED AND WESTERNERS WERE ADDRESSING/GUIDING THE GAKKAI IN JAPAN[WHICH WOULD NEVER, EVER HAPPEN], THEN THE INDIGENOUS JAPANESE WOULD BE EQUALLY REPELLED AND RESENTFUL, I SUPPOSE. IT MAY BE CONSIDERED TRIVIAL, BUT WORDS HAVE VAST POWER AND INFLUENCE, AND THE CONSTANT MANGLING OR VULGARIZATION OF LANGUAGE CAN SABOTAGE THAT POTENT ENERGY, AND DERAIL IT'S ULTIMATE, BENEFICIENT OBJECTIVES.

    1. I HAVE BEEN DIVORCED FROM THE SGI FOR SOME TIME NOW, AND WONDERED HOW TO REFORM THE DOCTRINE, OR REJECT IT ENTIRELY. JUST LIKE NICHIREN REJECTED THE DEGENERATION OF HIS RELIGIOUS PEERS, PERHAPS THAT WAS A SUBTLE SIGNPOST, LEFT BEHIND TO GUIDE OUR OWN GENERATION
      .....SIDDHARTHA REJECTED SEXISM, CASTE/STRATIFICATION, AND SO ON. NICHIREN REJECTED NON/LOTUS SUTRAS AND EXEGISES, AND WE MAY HAVE TO FOLLOW THEIR PREROGATIVES. TO LET THE LAW CORRODE AND DIE IS THE GREATEST SLANDER. NOW, WE MAY BE THE ONLY BUDDHISTS ON THIS PLANET WHO SEEK REFORM. THIS ARISES FROM COMPASSION, WHICH IS THE LIFE-BLOOD OF BUDDHISM, POSSIBLY. I HAVE TRIED TO UPHOLD THE LAW FOR FIVE DECADES, FRUSTRATED HOWEVER, BY THE DEAD/WEIGHT INERTIA OF AN ORGANIZATION WHICH HAS BECOME DEMORALIZED AND HYPNOTIZED BY A CHARISMATIC, RELIGIOUS, SAGE/IDOL, WHO'S MATERIALISM AND SELF-ABSORBTION HAVE SURPASSED THE REALM OF SURREALISM AND THE BLATANTLY GROTESQUE. NEVER IN HISTORY HAS ANYONE REACHED THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS MAN'S NARCISSISM, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE ICONS WHO SPRING TO MIND. NAPOLEON, HITLER, MUSSOLINI, McAURTHUR, MAO TSE TUNG, ARE CANDIDATES, BUT IKEDA'S FASCINATION WITH HIMSELF REPRESENTS A VIRULENT, WRECKLESS SELF-WORSHIP, BEYOND THESE DELUSIONAL PREDECESSORS. THE REASON IS THAT HE POSES AS A SPIRITUAL LEADER. HIS SELF-PROMOTION IS SICKENING COMPARED TO SIDDHARTHA, WHO NEVER CONSIDERED STANDING ABOVE HIS FOLLOWERS. IKEDA IS CONSTANTLY SEEN MILLING WITH MEMBERS, BUT IS THAT SOCIALIZING, NEVER MORE THAN FLY BY NIGHT ENCOUNTERS, OR PHOTO-OPS? I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM WITH COLLEAGUES. ALL OF HIS UNDERLINGS ARE MINIONS, WHO RECEIVE GENEROUS SALARIES FOR RESPONDING WITH THE CONSTANT, HAI/HAI. OR YES, SENSEI. I RESPECT HIS EARLY EFFORTS, BUT SOMEHOW THE ORGANIZATION NOW IS A HOLLOW, LANGUISHING VESTIGE OF IT'S FORMATIVE DAYS, WHICH MUST BE THE RESULT OF IKEDA, SINCE THERE IS NO ONE ELSE TO LOOK AT. IKEDA HAS EATEN AND DIGESTED THE GUTS OF THE SGI FOR DECADES, AND THE RESULTING APATHY AND ATROPHY SPEAK PRECISELY FOR HIS LONG, WIZARD-OF-OZ LIKE LEADERSHIP. THIS IS AS CLEAR AS THE CLOUDLESS, TRANQUIL, AZURE SKY.

  14. I would only disagree Jules that there is anything ever about Ikeda to respect. He altered the teachings and turned sandalwood into dung from the very beginning.

  15. What happened to deluded SGI Anonymous? Cat got your tongue? What about you Mr. fake "Actual Buddhist"? I remain here to destroy your perversion of the Daishonin's Buddhism.
