“Nothing is more PITIFUL than a nation being swept along by FOOLS.”
-From Daisaku Ikeda’s The HUMAN Revolution.
(Daisaku Ikeda is the appointed president of Sokka Gakkai INTERNATIONAL (SGI) a Worldwide Buddhist NETWORK
One of the SGI members asked me if I would be interested in waitressing (ie. serve food in EXCHANGE for monetary value) for another SGI friend of hers. Then recently I got a call from another SGI member telling me that SGI members do not lend money (EXCHANGE of monetary value) to one another. I found this humorous, given that the SGI organization itself could have never built schools, centers, etc., without the lending of capital (EXCHANGE of monetary value and/or labor, time, energies) from other SGI members and/or other humans. (Did Daisaku Ikeda ever wait tables? Is he human?). But the aforementioned “logic” of pitiful fools is what gives certain organizations LAUGHABLE reputations, and gives their organization’s presidents the millions of dollars they acquire. Consider this quote from Nichiren Daishonin the Buddhist monk who championed “Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo”, the chant the SGI members adhere to. “Never seek the Gohonzon outside of yourself”. Once again, quite humorous, since certain SGI members promote purchasing (EXCHANGE of monetary value) this Gohonzon -an EXTERNAL scroll. (if something is outside of yourself it is “external” – that’s further clarification for the fools) I’m laughing. God bless the USA for the freedom of speech, the power of choice, and international food courts at a mall near you. Peace! (PS. I LOVE SUSHI. yummy yum yum)
