Daisaku Ikeda, one of the most dedicated anti-nuclear activists known to history, is also a Buddhist philosopher, author, and an educator. During his presidency of the Buddhist religious movement in Japan - Soka Gakkai, he founded Soka Gakkai International, which became the largest Buddhist lay organization in the world. Ever since its founding, this association and the founder himself, have been fighting for peace and freedom of speech. Below you can find Daisaku Ikeda quotes that might prove to you that he really stood by this.
''Genuine happiness can only be achieved when we transform our way of life from the unthinking pursuit of pleasure to one committed to enriching our inner lives, when we focus on being more rather than simply having more.''
Try to let people into your life; what you might find out is that there are those willing to listen to you.
