Soka Gakkai's Deviations Clear to All

"Dedicated to those Soka Gakkai Members who wish to know the truth"

Ikeda's Insane Statements Disqualify Him As A Religious Leader

 

Introducing His Unedited Speeches, Extracted from Recorded Tapes

Although the Soka Gakkai has been advertising itself with statements like, "All the leaders in the world are seeking the guidance of President Ikeda," his live speeches are infamous for their crude vulgarity. Let us introduce here unedited transcripts of some of his recorded live speeches.

"I would like to thank you, the Men's Division in the Chubu region, from the bottom of my heart for your sincere effort on behalf of the Soka Gakkai of the entire world. Thanks. (*The participants applauded and waved their hands). Come on! You're barely waving your hands. And those of you who've just waved your hands will not suffer from palsy!! You look great. See. If you could wave your hand more energetically, you could've accumulated good fortune, but…" (April 26th, 1992 at the 8th Chubu General Meeting)

"You know, there may be quite a few people who have not done morning Gongyo, but it's OK. One Daimoku will do." (April 26th, 1992, at the 8th Chubu General Meeting)

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

"The fourth volume of the Lotus Sutra, in the Hosshi Chapter, teaches that to hate and become hostile even the slightest to the followers of the Lotus Sutra in the Latter Day of the Law─more specifically to me, and in general, to the Gakkai members─ is even more sinful than slandering the Buddha for a long period of time called one medium Kalpa. This is what the Daishonin is saying." (April 26th, 1992, at the 8th Chubu General Meeting)

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

"True honzon only exists in the two characters of faith (shin ╶ jin). To hell with the High sanctuary of True Buddhism, and the wooden Gohonzon! (Dai-Gohonzon). Kanson (Nichikan Shonin) says: 'The true object of worship can only be found in faith.' (The High Sanctuary of True Buddhism and Dai-Gohonzon) That's nothing but an object!" (September 7th, 1993 Senior Leaders Meeting at Headquarters)

 + + + + + + + + + + + +

"Thank you, members from San Francisco, for taking care of the exchange group from the Kansai region. If I flatter like this, I know I can get a lot more donations for Kofu Fund, and I say this in a low voice." (January 27th, 1993 at the Joint General Meeting between the US SGI and Kansai region)

 + + + + + + + + + + + +

"We have entered a great era, haven't we? Soon several government ministers will be appointed from amongst us. That will happen soon. In fact, you will see them tomorrow or so. They are all your subordinates. You can regard them that way. The Soka Gakkai is No.1 in Japan." (August 8th, at the 69th Headquarters Senior Leader's Meeting)

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

"Well, let's see, like (High Priest) Nikken is representative (of disgusting men). So he should be tied with a wire and his head hit with a hammer." (Laughter) (December 13th, at the National Youth Division Senior Leaders' Meeting)

 + + + + + + + + + + + +

"Itoman Peace Hall? I am afraid that it might be better to change its name. It sounds like a woman… sounds like a woman. Itoman sounds like a woman. (*This joke did not appeal to the audience very much.) No good. This is much better. A better name is Kin-Man. (*Kin represents the first kanji character of the male's genital organ in Japanese while Man represents the female's.) Or rather, Itoman, Kin-XXX ko!" (There was laughter in the hall because *Kin- XXX ko are vulgar Japanese words, meaning male + female genital parts.) (July 7th, 1993 at the 66th Headquarters' Senior Leaders' Meeting) * Ikeda actually verbalized the worst gutter-slang Japanese four-letter-words but since this is a newspaper, XXX is used.

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

“My speech is sophisticated and easy to understand an'yet it's philosophical, literary, poetic and colloquial. You must be very smart to follow me. And when you get stuck, let out your frustration by listening to a chorus together. That's artistic and that's the true way the SGI should practice Buddhism. The opposite is (High Priest) Nikken's way." (January 27th, 1993 at the Joint General Meeting between the American SGI and Kansai Region)

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

"New York! People from New York are clean because you wash your body every day (It was not at all funny to the New Yorkers)." (January 27th, 1993 at the Joint General Meeting between the American SGI and Kansai Region)

 + + + + + + + + + + + +

"Hawaii! Mahallo! Mahallo! Bakayallo! (*meaning "Idiot") Bahallo!" (January 27th, 1993 at the Joint General Meeting between American SGI and Kansai Region)

 + + + + + + + + + + + +

"The other day, Obasan, Obasanjo…Without adding two letters, it would be "Obasan". (* "Obasan" means a middle-aged woman with a derogatory nuance in Japanese) But it turned out to be a man. (* Referring to a former Head of Nigeria, Obasanjo) He is the central figure among all African nations. To tell you the truth, he is smart. It's hard. When we say "Africa", they are a little bit black. Yes, but it's even worse. Prejudice is no good. The most stupid is (High Priest) Nikken!" (April 26th, 1992 at the 8th Chubu General Meeting)

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

"You must be hoping that it (* the meeting) should be over quickly because you all want to piss. Isn't that right?" (April 26th, 1992 at the 8th Chubu General Meeting)
