    The Inspiring History of Soka Gakkai

    This volume of The Human Revolution, as with every other book I've read by Daisaku Ikeda, truly inspired me. As a Soka Gakkai member and someone who has practiced Buddhism for over 30 years, I am proud to say The Human Revolution recalls the dignified struggle of our Soka Gakkai pioneers to create value and hope amidst even the most adverse circumstances. The Human Revolution was authored by the President of Soka Gakkai International (SGI), Daisaku Ikeda. Lightly disguised as fiction, The Human Revolution is actually an inside account of the history of Soka Gakkai, an association of Nichiren Buddhists that grew from a mere handful of members in post-World War II Japan to its present-day membership of over 12 million in 128 countries. It also serves as a delicate biography of its second president, Josei Toda, as told by his successor, Ikeda, who appears in the novel as Shin'ichi Yamamoto. Mr. Ikeda has born in Tokyo in 1928, barely survived his youth in war-torn Japan, graduated from Fuji College, joined the Soka Gakkai and began practicing Buddhism in 1947. In 1960 he became the third president of the Soka Gakkai at the young age of 32. He later retired and became the President of Soka Gakkai International in 1978. Mr. Ikeda is the founder of several institutions for the development of peace, culture and education - including Soka University, Soka High Schools, the Fuji Art Museum, the Min-On Concert Association, the Boston Research Center and the Institute of Oriental Philosophy. He has received many awards and honorary degrees from institutions and universities around the world, including the United Nations Peace Award. His writings, including The Human Revolution, have been translated into more than a dozen languages. As Arnold Toynbee said in the foreword Volume 1 of The Human Revolution, 'Nichiren held that Buddhism was a means of Salvation for his fellow human beings everywhere. In working for the human revolution, Soka Gakkai is carrying out Nichiren's mandate.' I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the true history and conviction of the Soka Gakkai.
