WHY ARE WE STILL NOT CELEBRATING NICHIREN DAISHONINS BIRTHDAY?

ALERT


This is a matter of the most extreme urgency. The major events celebrating the establishment of True Buddhism have been relegated to a secondary status as local events in our organization and completely disregarded in some areas or given mere lip service in others.

Why are we still not celebrating Nichiren Daishonin's Birthday as a major event in the SGI? The Daishonin is being treated as a secondary priest, whose milestone events signifying the establishment of  True Buddhism for all humankind are only celebrated on a local level, if at all. With all due respects to President Ikeda, President Toda and President Makiguchi, Nichiren Daishonin is the Original Buddha of the infinite past, which is our prime belief.

Insist that February 16, Nichiren Daishonin's Birthday, April 28, the Establishment of True Buddhism and October 12, the Anniversary of the Inscription of the Dai-Gohonzon be celebrated as national events in the SGI like Soka Gakkai Day, Kosen-rufu Day, SGI Day and others. Ask the leaders what's going on, and insist that we must do this, or we are in essence belittling the True Buddha.
